I think Stefan's comparison with window-system display updates is apropos.

Perhaps a similar solution would be in order: if there are situations where
it's desirable for overlays (&c) to be re-established after a buffer-smashing
operation, maybe there should just be a list of (FUNCTION . ARGS) entries,
and (apply FUNCTION ARGS) would be done on each entry after such an event.

Are there other places than info where a buffer gets smashed in a way that
doesn't entirely invalidate the data anyway (re-visiting a file comes to
