    So because of unnecessary work to set text property to well
    structured data on *all* lines we have slow down instead perform
    parsing of reference on demand.


    Or I am something missing?

You have well-structured data but the compilation (likewise, grep)
font-locking tries to cope with a more general input.  You can prune
some elements from ‘compilation-error-regexp-alist’ to help focus the
font-locking.  Have you tried that?

Yes. I wrote:

(require 'compile)
(setq my-log2-error-regexp-alist
        ("^\\([^:]+\\):\\([[:digit:]]+\\):" 1 2)
(define-compilation-mode my-log2-mode "MyLog"
  "Log mode."
  (set (make-local-variable 'compilation-error-regexp-alist)

And as I describe previously I eval on same 289 KiB long buffer:
(benchmark-run 1 (revert-buffer))
and get: (20.937 1 0.109)

In contrast to test of 'grep-mode' where I get: (22.406 1 0.156)

As I use same regex for derived from compilation mode as for
custom highlighting mode I decide that bottle neck lies
in setting properties to text.

When set only 'face' property - this is fast. But when set 'message'
property it is slow as 'message' is complex structure which must
recalculated on every matching lines.

Best regards!
