One solution is to use file variables. Comments starting with :: are
correctly processed by putting the following line at top of each batch

:: -*-coding: iso-latin-1-dos; comment-start:"::" -*-

Regarding the coding I observed that when using a dos encoding
fontification doesn't work as expected: keywords set and goto are not
fontified when they are at lines beginning. It comes from the regex:

     '("[ \t\n|]\\<\\([gG][oO][tT][oO]\\)\\>[ \t]*\\(:?\\sw+\\)?"

I think it should be better to use [:space:].
