I've also been wondering about this lately. Seems to me that scope  
should handle anything interesting. Although the shorthand  
("comment.line.perl" vs "source.perl comment.line") is convenient, I  
don't think it's worth cluttering the language files.

I seem to recall adding the language suffixes before I knew how it  
would interact with the scope system -- I wanted to be able to run  
simple tools on the files to do mass conversions. (Or I might be  
hallucinating. Long weekend, much inhaled drywall dust.)
