If someone uses Notepad++ it's pretty easy to add the syntax highlighting.  It took me about 15 minutes to add a 6809 syntax. 

It would require standardizing extension names though since some of us program for different CPUs.  I've seen extensions of ".s", ".asm", "a09", etc.  The generic ones are used on all processors and there would be a conflict.  I think that goes for any development tool we use with syntax highlighting.
