Yes, it's the same.  And yes, I like the idea, but I just don't know
what it would look like as a patch.  I have the impression that it could
prove either expensive in CPU time and backward incompatible
(e.g. adjust markers for every buffer modification), or require
extensive code surgery and/or breaking some abstractions.

This is just an impression, tho.  I think it'd definitely be the better
solution, so it's worth investigating anyway, if only for "master" rather
than for "emacs-25".
