This has to do with functions that make "hidden buffer changes", i.e.
change text properties for internal purposes. See the blurb on that
near the top of cc-engine.el. c-guess-basic-syntax is a function that
could do such hidden buffer changes, but I've now wrapped it so that
it can be called in read only mode again.

It is. I had to do that change to be able to extend syntactic
information. There's a note about it in NEWS (which I've extended a
bit now).

I think such predicate functions belong in CC Mode. How did you design
