Yes, multiline highlighting is a challenge.

I finally (a few years ago now) bit the bullet and moved from my old
skool 72 char filled/wrapped lines (I started programming in F66 on
punch cards back in the stone age ;-)) to single line paragraphs with
visual-line-mode and org-indent.  Highlighting (and other markers) now
work as I would like although obviously limited to a single paragraph.

The only negative is the presentation of wide tables where I have to
switch back to non-visual line mode and then back again when I move away
from the table but I have a keybinding to toggle this so not too
painful...  More positively, revision control is cleaner as there is no
reformatting of paragraphs.
