In the grand scheme, this might be a minor point, but:

While consistency is a good thing, I am nevertheless glad for that
last point.  I am concerned that incorporating the parser into
fontification will break inline footnotes that have more than one
paragraph (unless it is designed to be flexible enough to allow that).

To me, paragraphs naturally fit in inline footnotes, just as they do
in non-inline ones, but that is incompatible with the current parser,
which treats paragraphs as semantically larger units than inline
footnotes.

I appreciate your workaround for making them work again in export,
which works.  Fontification currently works perfectly also as it
always has; I just don't want that to stop working for those who, like
me, use inline footnotes similarly to non-inline ones, occasionally
with more than one paragraph.

This of course leaves us open to the accusation that nobody should be
so long-winded in a footnote as to have more than one paragraph (and
quotes and more, which currently work perfectly, <ahem>), but the same
would apply to non-inline footnotes also, and Org is in any case by
tradition highly flexible.
