Note that LexCPP,cxx styles for C, C++, Java and JS, but doesn't distinguish between them. Geany distinguishes between them, but Geany and Scintilla are different projects and there are a number of other users of Scintilla. So Scintilla can't depend on anything thats Geany specific.

Also Geany (ab?)uses LexCPP.cxx for a number of other built in languages as well as the four above, Actionscript, Ferite, Go, and Haxe and there are several custom filetypes distributed with Geany that use C styling, CUDA, Genie, Graphviz, JSON and Scala. Finally there are many custom filetypes on the wiki and I bet a number of those use C styling.

So it would be best to (as @b4n commented above) to have a property to specifically turn this on or off in the Scintilla lexer as the language sees fit, see OptionSetCPP.
