This would work nicely with syntax highlighting and other editor/IDE

That doesn't look any more elegant than "selected php:item.index ==
selected", and isn't any simpler to novice users, because you have to know
The Tales parser just detects that the start of the expression is the
"<?php" (or even "<?") and then fetches all the contents until "?>" is
found (PHP's tokenizer could even be used to avoid false positives). The
whole PHP chunk is then outputted in the generated file where the
$ctx->path() call would go for normal tales expressions.
This would probably mean that the source template will need to be
preprocessed, since as far as I know, processing instructions are not
allowed inside attribute values.
PHPTAL already does that.
By the way, if you decide to go for extending Tales, I think it'll be
very dangerous to allow function calling from them. Even if you try to
add some white-listing security feature, it could always be prone to
abuse and a possible attack vector.
It's already possible in TALES using php: syntax.
