Sorry to disappoint you here, but that stuff was there well before me
and I've not messed with it to any noticeable degree.  I seem to
remember that Reiner Steib might have done a bit more in that respect,
but I might be mixing up names here, too.

At any rate, the base of the style code has probably not been touched
for something like 20 years, so it's quite likely that the reasons for
making any particular technical decision in that area are decidedly
historical.

font-latex has different font highlighting from the Emacs default modes,
and some may prefer the latter (which also tends to track Emacs' current
capabilities better and might be more efficient for that reason).
