Indeed, there can be several "meaningful" choices.

Currently, narrowing doesn't say anything about what is being narrowed
or why, so we can't distinguish between different cases, which means
that it's impossible for something like font-lock or syntax-ppss (which
can require additional contextual info in order to correctly process
the narrowed pat of the buffer) to know how much to widen.
