Since I haven't seen it in the thread (apologies if I have
overseen it), I think this is a problem class which arises
in other contexts (e.g. Javascript embedded in HTML, SQL
embedded in some host language, etc.)

There is a whole flurry of solutions which have emerged
for that, generally under the title "multiple major modes"

Perhaps those are a bit heavyweight wrt what you had in
mind (Org doesn't try to have the whole major mode up and
running on the snippet, but offers editing in another buffer).

Emacs seems to be slowly converging towards something.
