It's a bad state of affairs and nobody seems to care.  The "Multiline
Font Lock Constructs" section, for example, painstakingly explains how
to use `jit-lock-contextually' to handle multiline constructs but does
not bother whether that option has been ever described anywhere.

You probably should not have followed the bad example of others.  But
I'll stop here telling you how a new option should be introduced.  Sorry
if I have bothered you, it was not my intention.
