To which I'd reply why not not?  There are plenty of top-notch text editors out there that do just that.  (See the Text editor FAQ at

It's not Stata's comparative advantage to venture any further into the text editor business.  It's one think to ask Stata to add a simple 'find' feature or the like, but syntax highlighting goes far beyond that.  StataCorp's business is to make a bleeding-edge Stats package, period.
