We ship a few ourselves (http://code.qt.io/cgit/qt-creator/qt-creator.git/tree/src/share/3rdparty/generic-highlighter)
and since there already is the one for .dox/.doxygen, I’d say one for doxyfile would be ok to have there too.
They are mostly copies from the original Kate files though, so it would be good to have the doxyfile one in Kate too.
(You can also get the other Kate highlighting files by downloading them in the options > Text Editor > Generic Highlighter.)
