To better support your needs, it would be nice if you could tell me which languages you view or edit the most in Textastic.

If something is missing on this list, please add a comment and I'll add it as an option.

If I could use Git from Textastic I could do without my laptop on short trips!
True, but different topic
+1
It IS a different topic, but nonetheless the most important missing feature, IMO. The current state of syncing is inconvenient enough to prevent me from using Textastic 90% of the times that I would use it if I could just push and pull to/from github. 
N3/turtle, especially, as well as rdf
Done - although I've never heard of that one until now :)
+1
The language of the future! Semantic web and all (if you like ontologies).

There's actually a long dormant textmate tmbundle for n3 around, which I installed on textastic. It "works", and is not bad, but it fails to deliver comprehensive highlighting and it's very far from a pro mode à la emacs.

I've now been using textastic for all of, what, three or four days. It is so cool it defies the laws of coolness. I'm geeting a bluetooth keyboard just so I can work more with it.

Clojure is missing, so I checked "Lisp" (though there is really no such thing)
+2
HAML
LSL (Linden Scripting Language for Second Life)
Any Domain Specific Languages like : VHDL, GReg, SysML and so forth even your own ones :)
Would love to see XSL code completion

Visual Basic .NET!!!

Fantom (fantom.org)

Visual Basic .NET!  The existing ASP option kinda works ... but it would be nice to have a dedicated VB option.
Coldfusion markup! Please :
Coldfusion is already an option.
I use MultiMarkdown from Fletcher Penney.
I'm missing T-SQL on this list as well as MySql. Thanks.
Under review
I've added SQL as an option.

How about Basic languages, like Visual Basic? I don't see any syntax highlighting for them. It is good that we be able to assign a set of file extensions for one that syntax highlighting is available to have highlighting for them. For example, like notepad++, if I assign .bmx to visual basic kind set, notepad++ shows myfile.bmx with visual basic highlighting.

I also edit SVG (XML

I think that's covered by XML.

TypeScript? Does the existing JavaScript support already cover this? I see you do list CoffeeScript separately...

I would like to add MoonScript to the list.

How about HCL (HashiCorp Configuration Language), it's used by Terraform and GitHub Actions, to name a few. 

TOML please? Quite popular these days.

Under review

Added MoonScript, HCL, and TOML.
