I don't think using the original word delimiters is a good thing. Let's imagine that c.xml lists the functions of the libc and a language that allows them to be used as `ffi.C.printf` (luajit for the curious). The separators of the 2 languages are not the same and `puts'plop'` works for one, but not for the other. If we rely on the C delimiters, it will not work anymore. I think we can find other examples and perhaps counter-examples. Currently, if we want to keep the word delimiters, we can always create a context in the referenced file (or another syntax file) and make an `IncludeRule`. It's ugly, the current checker complains if the context is not used, but I don't think that happens in nature. From what I see, the languages that share word lists are either syntactically similar or radically different.
