I've also worked some on support for TikZ in AUCTeX, but I think I've taken it
in a different direction than you have.  My code is available githib; there's a
screenshot, a link, and discussion of the code at  I was focused only on getting
precise syntax highlighting, rather than fitting in smoothly with AUCTeX's
font-lock mechanism, since TikZ's syntax doesn't seem amenable to the
regex-based approach that font-lock uses.  I haven't had a chance to update the
code in a while, to finish the parsing of TikZ forms, but the combinators I used
are complete enough to get the rest working relatively easily.
