AFAIK, the only options are: change it every time you open the file.  
Use tabmate with modelines. Change the file extension. Or change the  
language syntaxes to support that file extension.

I had to do exactly that a few times and I eventually resorted to just  
changing it each time I opened the file. The trick is to open in in a  
new window and then change it, that way it doesn't effect your other  
open files syntax pref when switching project tabs.
