Ah yes, there might be this problem indeed.
Maybe it could be possible to keep a "partial" state of the syntax checker,
and only discard the parts that are being edited, until the document can be
checked entirely, possibly with a warning at the bottom right saying that
the syntax checker is not currently in sync.
That would help for the contract coloring as well as for the identifier
information rectangle, but I'm not sure this is easy to implement.
