The mmm SourceForge site has inks to the mmm-discuss mailing list,

Aside from that, support for mixed-mode buffers suffers in Emacs due
to limitations on the ability of using syntax tables for multiple
purposes in a buffer.   The design of syntax tables implies that a
single syntax table controls an entire buffer in a single style. 
mmm-mode attempts to get around this by "dynamically" switching syntax
tables as the point moves through various areas of a buffer.  One very
noticable side effect involves the fact that when you set up the
syntax table for a particular sub-buffer, it changes the entire buffer
view.  Until someone comes up with a way to regionalize syntax tables,
you just have to live with the "bleeding" of syntax table-based
font-locks between buffer regions.
