Syntax highlighting isn't to help me understand the code. I can read/write/understand the code I'm writing with or without the colors, but it certainly slows down my flow when they're gone. If having little or no highlighting works better for you and others then that's definitely what you should do, but there would be zero benefit for me to code like that all the time.
