It seems to me that those conflicts aren't a real problem for the
combined text+prog mode: the same problems exist with the current setup
when you want prog-mode and you get text-mode (or vice versa), so using
a combined text+prog mode wouldn't make things really worse.

And I don't think there's a really better solution to this problem: you
currently want A for text-modes and B for prog-modes, so for modes which
sit halfway you're going to have to tweak your ~/.emacs to tell Emacs
which of A or B (or yet something else, maybe) you want, no matter how
we make these halfway modes behave.
