So the irony of saying that the files are poor is that I took that code from the highlight file from Vim itself and simply automated the creation of the files.

As for the more proper way of selecting when to apply the highlights, I would not be surprised that I am wrong.

The entire point of the Misc/Vim directory was so that we had files which were as up-to-date as svn is. I personally got tired of not having new keywords be recognized. I'm no Vim expert -- just a happy user -- so I'm sure there could be better out there. If we drop the files we will just have to go back to manually editing files to support new syntax until the community picks it up. But maybe devolving responsibility like that is not a bad thing.

And your link for the Python 3 syntax is incorrect; it's the same as the PEP 8 indentation file.
