Portability, to use your parenthetical definition thereof.

} Automatically enabling syntax highlighting: I don't believe Vim has

}     Doc/editorconfig/vim/syntax/zyodl.vim

In case not clear, it's not Doc/editorconfig/, it's a Doc/.editorconfig
file intended to be loaded by editors that use that common configuration
method.  I'm not in favor of adding a (non-hidden, as in not a dotfile)
tree of stuff under Doc/ that is not part of the actual documentation.

(That's a lot of nots.)

If you can't jam it all in a .vimrc or the like, it should probably go
in Util/ rather than Doc/.
