This may or may not be something to consider but ...

What is the impact of using this technique for accessibility and users
of assistive technology like text-to-speech or braille displays?

I'm currently not in the position to test this patch, but once I get
some environments for testing sorted out, I should be able to try it

From an accessibility perspective, behaviour which changes what is
'displayed' based on cursor position is often confusing for things like
text-to-speech. In the past, I have run into issues with prettify
symbols because it results in either less meaningful content (e.g.
unicode numbers rather than defined character names) or additional
spoken text which makes it difficult to understand. Things like
overlays, tooltips or features which make display different from
underlying character content can often be problematic with assistive
