I think Eli has indicated that LSP support in the core is desirable
at some point

Not only desirable: long overdue.  Emacs must learn to use the latest
technologies of supporting programming languages based on real
parsing, because the time when it could be done with regular
expressions and similar techniques has come and gone.  We cannot
enable significant new IDE-like features if we don't acquire these

Please someone start working on this ASAP.  We sorely need that, just
look at the recent discussions on Reddit that underline these
deficiencies in Emacs.

I thought João wrote eglot which is in ELPA for this? (FWIW I don’t use it
personally because I found it didn’t work with the servers I use, but when I
used it shortly it was pretty great, a pretty smooth process. I was impressed.)

And it’s definitely much better than before, Emacs now works with a lot of
‘modern’ languages. Unfortunately, LSP doesn’t provide support for syntax
highlighting, but I thought tree-sitter is being worked on for that?
