You can in principle tap directly into font lock-mode.
For instance something like

 (add-hook 'org-mode-hook
           (lambda ()
             (font-lock-add-keywords nil
                                     '(("\\<\\(FIXME\\):" 1 
'font-lock-warning-face prepend)
                                       ("\\<\\(and\\|or\\|not\\)\\>" .

would fontify [FIXME:], [and] [or] ,and [not], without the [], in org-mode, See 
doc of font-lock-add-keywords (just stole the code above from it)

I could not achieve what you want though. Don't have enough time and energy
to think about it now, and I'm very bad with regex. :-). But in
principle it should do the job,

Hope this helps,
