The syntax highlighting was designed to highlight text that has a very
regular and predictable structure in a way that works consistently from
document to document. The example you give seems very document-specific, it
may be difficult to write highlighting rules that do what you want as it
seems like your problem is in a different domain that the problems syntax
highlighting was designed to solve.

Try activating the following menu item: `Window->Show->Tags`. This will add
a sidebar that will allow you to jump around to the sections/subsections/etc
of your document. Hopefully it provides some of the functionality you are
looking for.
