Cannot enable what?

Font-lock and indentation based on those capabilities, for one.

Neither is part of the LSP protocol, so Eglot doesn't do this (yet).

LSP at the moment provides more "advances" features: code completion, navigation and documentation. In short, it's a replacement for etags and the manual. For all supported languages.

For these two features in particular, we might want to pick a TreeSitter based solution anyway, because that one at least could allow us to continue writing grammars in Emacs, instead of entirely relying on external programs to keep up-to-date and complete grammars.

TreeSitter requires NPM for customization and compiles to C, right? I don't want people to require either to customize Emacs. Why not just port the tree sitter parser generator to elisp?
