Yes. In the wiki plugin, you have lines such as:

flag ["ocaml"; "compile";  "syntax_"^syntax] & S[A"-syntax"; A syntax];

This means that the "-syntax foo" option will only be added if a package 
"foo" exists AND your compiled file (i.e. ".ml") has tag "syntax_foo". 
So, just tag your files, but not two files with two syntax tags.

Unfortunately, not yet.
