And then it would be easier for extension developers to write things the
color code code blocks for people like me who spend a lot of time reading
code on peoples web pages that's often not color coded.

For example:

Not colored
http://livepipe.net/projects/picora/

Colored
http://livepipe.net/projects/event_behavior/

I'm not suggesting html have anything to do with defining color coding rules
or anything of the sort. But I do agree that extra bit of important
information would be Very useful to many people.
