Please excuse my tardiness.  Actually, I have my own funky handling of
identifiers.  I don't think that what you've done should cause any
problems, though.

This is what I have:

syn match  rubyScopeSpecifier           display containedin=rubyClassVariable,rubyInstanceVariable,rubyGlobalVariable "\%(@\+\|\$\)"
syn match  rubyClassVariable		"@@\h\w*"		display
syn match  rubyInstanceVariable		"@\h\w*"		display
syn match  rubyGlobalVariable		"$\%(\h\w*\|-.\)"       display

I like having global variables highlighted (so as to not use thum).  And
I like having the scope-specifier highlighted in @blah and @@bluh.
Having them highlighted makes them stand out, without hurting my eyes,
