Certainly.  But then (with the current implementation) we would lose
the ability to fontify two or more subsequent arguments.  I explained
it yesterday or the day before I think.  font-latex is only able to
distinguish between three parts of a LaTeX macro, the macro name,
a block of optional arguments and a block of mandatory arguments.
Each part is determined by one match and will get a different face.
If there is more than one mandatory argument, the match will span all
arguments:

\fooo[bar]{baz}{bla}
|_1_||_2_||___3____|
