    It seems to me a major failing that I have to rely on font-lock (and
    thus on redisplay being done).  Is there a good reason why the lazy
    text properties mechanism can't be tarted up (e.g. not just triggered
    by `buffer-substring') and used to ensure syntax properties are
    up-to-date for modes that need it?

I seem to recall that there is already a facility for doing exactly
this.  I recall that it was put in for exactly the reasons you have in
mind, a few years ago.
