There is currently no good way to do that.

If the language is “stand alone” (i.e. not included by a parent  
language) then one can often create a new language and let that new  
language define the additional rules and include the original grammar.

There is however a very clear need for more flexibility in this  
respect, and I am contemplating a system both using base grammars  
(shared by all languages) and the scope injection which has been  
mentioned a few times in the past (to inject a sub-grammar into a  
given scope.)

As for the delta files: these do not have the granularity of storing  
only changes to single rules, as that can’t be merged without  
potential conflicts when the default grammar is updated.
