I think you want more flexibility for delimiting mode chunks in general.

<URL:http://www.loveshack.ukfsn.org/emacs/multi-mode.el> implements
roughly what we intended by the Emacs TODO item on the topic many years
ago (if it's still there).

I'm rather baffled by this nxhtml thing referred to, and its complexity.
It claims to be trying to solve a problem that the indirect buffer
approach doesn't have.  Can someone explain why?

Doing this sort of thing properly really needs support from Emacs, which
was originally meant to be added as necessary.
