You are the best to judge what is possible or not. I had in mind that each mode
will build such a context, but tackling it at SMIE level seems like a much
better start. Will be back when I have a better understanding of it.

SMIE is relatively new; 7 modes in emacs and 5 in ELPA are already using it, but
it probably can be still molded here and there.
