I would love to see highlighting rules for C and ELisp that at least
catch the comment problems: starting with lowercase and a period without
two spaces, etc.  I don't know the Emacs highlighting at all so I can't
write these myself, plus I would probably miss many of the rules through

If those rules could be enabled with a file-local variable that would be
even better.  It would really help people like me and Claudio who don't
work with the Emacs source code often.  It would probably benefit most
GNU projects, not just Emacs, to provide this.
