I think it's just a reflection of the fact that author doesn't know
enough about jit-lock and font-lock.

I sent him some patches that should help.

I think this risks being read as unwelcoming, which is unlikely to
encourage them to get in touch with emacs-devel.

tree-sitter, like LSP, is something Emacs should embrace.  I think in
the case of tree-sitter we would benefit from participating directly in
its development to make sure it's easy enough to integrate into Emacs
(e.g. doesn't require a Javascript or C compiler on the end-user side).
