I asked because it seems to me that many mode indenters look at the
syntax to decide what to do.

While digging around I found this in syntax.el:

    ;;; Todo:

    ;; - do something about the case where the syntax-table is changed.

So I suppose it is just a known problem.

The basic idea, I think, would be to let the mode(s) change the syntax
table when needed; and to have these changes be recorded by syntax.el so
that syntax-ppss and friends could use the correct syntax table for a
given region.
