author(s) would make sure that Vim works very well on C code. It also
stands to reason that early on, C programmers would extend Vim in C.
PROTIP: You sound like a troll when you throw around loaded phrases
like "special treatment" and "bias". If you are genuinely curious
about the history of Vim, I suggest toning your rhetoric down. One
can't help but wonder if other "front-end" developers are as insecure
in their profession as you sound to be.
If your intent is to divide the Vim community into "traditional" and
"front-end" programming camps by playing their cultural differences
against each other, then well played, sir. Now please find a more
useful hobby. Maybe you can make the NSA implode.

> PROTIP: You sound like a troll when you throw around loaded phrasesI used words like "seems like" and "at first glance" and "I don't know" because I was not trolling. Saying something like "vim has a language bias" would be trolling. I'm just telling you my perception, with an admittance that it's probably wrong. Calling someone a troll might be trolling though ;) so we're both doomed
