Narrowing *is* generally useful for treating part of a buffer as a
consistent unit, though, especially when that part is syntactically
different from the rest of the buffer.

Not sure what you mean by "consistent unit".

Narrowing is useful as a poor man's mmm-mode, among other things, and programatically, it's useful for parsing delimited constructs (where we can just narrow to the region of interest). Narrowing hasn't been a purely visual hint, and plenty of lisp-level functions treat the edges of the accessible portion of the buffer as real buffer ends. Since this abstraction almost completely works today, we should try to fill any remaining gaps.
