This would be a question for the Scintilla mailing list[1] since Scintilla
determines what to send to a lexer Fold function. I can only imagine that
it is to ensure folding level integrity.

Honestly I don't know. I took it from the tutorial here[2] and it appears
in other lexers so I presume this is standard practice. This is probably
another question for the Scintilla list.
