Thanks, I just committed a fix.

Well, for people working in plain TeX mode, that would be the  
language to choose. Not sure how many those people are however. That  
is why we don't have a shortcut for it. Actually TeX Math is the one  
that should definitely not appear there. But I suppose if noone uses  
the TeX bundle, we can take that out of there as well. How do we make  
it not appear there though, and still exist?

IIRC, sty files often don't look too good on the LaTeX syntax  
coloring, but perhaps I am misremembering. Do you write sty files,  
and in that case would you rather have LaTeX as the grammar for them?
