Do you plan to reparse continuously to keep the token structure up to
date all the time?

Given that reparsing is likely to take time, it may not be the best approach.
It could sometimes make Emacs become nonresponsive while it is reparsing
a substantial amount of text.

Ideally it should be like Font Lock -- reparsing parts of the buffer
when time is available.
