3 years ago I also have desire to make patch that provide highlighting of '::'
as comment syntax and want 'M-;' (comment-dwim) be able uncomment such regions
as I involved in project with many batch files with such commenting style...

There a lot of batch-file modes for Emacs:

  http://www.emacswiki.org/emacs/DosScripts

 * http://emacswiki.org/emacs/batch-mode.el
 * http://emacswiki.org/emacs/cmd-mode.el

I don't try them as don't like any external dependency (but "apt-get install"
accept).

So stuck with bat-generic-mode. Feature that I like and which is missing is an
indentation for batch parentheses syntax:

  if exist file.txt (
    echo xxx
  ) else (
    echo yyy
  )
