doesn't anyone see this as a defect? namely, the fact that only parts
of keywords are syntax colored in emacs-lisp-mode. This behavior is
contrary to all other major modes.

i haven't coded Common or Scheme lisp. Does major modes for those only
color only a subset of the lang's keywords? (i.e. if so, maybe this is
a lisp lang tradition)
