Gave this syntax file a shot and I dont think it should be included in 
the standard package. Its very colorful, but it breaks too many standard 
highlighting conventions.

  * The 'node' keyword doesnt gets highligted with a different color
    than 'primitive', 'property', etc
  * The names of primitives, clones, etc should be highlighed with
    "Identifier" not "Type"
  * The primitive type (ocf:hearbeat:whatever) should be "Normal"
  * Chars like '=' '\' ':' should not be assigned a color ("Normal" or
    left alone)
  * Colors of weights are assigned different colors when used in
    location rules and colocation/order rules. These should get the same
    color policy, and should also be something other than "String".

The color output you get from 'configure show' should be what vim looks 
like, or very close to it.
