FWIW, Eclipse CDT supports semantic highlighting, and it's hooked up in the LSP configuration to work with with cquery's $cquery/publishSemanticHighlighting message.
It should be straightforward to adapt the implementation to work with a slightly different protocol, such as the one proposed for clangd. I will even volunteer to do the client-side work involved in this adaptation, if that convinces you to continue working on the server-side feature :)
