I more thinking in variant, when the highlighting more dynamic, and is done more, that one time. For example, in Cantor, we rehighlight whole worksheet, when a new variable created in curresponding session. So, if you write "my_var = 3" in Python session (and run command cell with this command), "my_var" starts to highlight by Cantor as variable after that.
