A plea for syntax low-lighting

There are many arguments against syntax highlighting.

But what about syntax low-lighting? Fading out irrelevant boilerplate. Or even hide it.

Interactive demo

Machine Human
public class Greeter {

    public void Greet() {
        // prints "Hello, world!"
        Print("Hello, world!")

Low-lighting demo

Would be great to make Lisp readable to the layperson. For example by hiding the parentheses (from the outside in or vice versa?)
