The design seems to assume that every island starts with a
one-character delimiter that always starts an island, and that there
is anothehr one-character delimiter that always ends an island.
Is that really the intention, or did I misunderstand?
That's not quite how I see it working.  There needs to be some sort of
delimiter to start an island which must be at least 1 character wide.

What about keeping a simple index of modes instead?

Just make major-mode work on current indexed chunk only instead of whole buffer.
