Could you explain what you mean when you suggest a truly syntax-oriented 
editor?

Remember that Mathematica is not like many programming languages in that 
there are not really different "parts of speech" -- verbs (i.e., 
functions), nouns (i.e., constants), pronouns (i.e., variables), adverbs 
  (i.e., operators), etc.  EVERYTHING is an "expression".
