In `etc/NEWS.25' there is the comment 

** 'syntax-begin-function' is declared obsolete.

I guess that if one stops using  'syntax-begin-function', it would help remove
a dependency which would not be required in future.

Right, if the version of emacs has `syntax-begin-function', then one could use 
as has been done.  I am making a new version without calls to things that would,
 be obsolete, but without breaking the colouring functionality. 

There is a call to flush the cache `(syntax-ppss-flush-cache 0' with 
`(boundp 'syntax-begin-function)'.  Would this still be necessary?
