I don't think that even clears the threshold of originality.

Do what ever you want with it.

The file kate/syntax/data/lpc.xml says that it's license is "Artistic". It's from 2004, so it's safe to assume that this means the (non-free) Artistic License 1.0.

There are also some syntax files which don't have their license field filled. I asked in #kate on Freenode. Someone called igli replied that it means that they fall under Kate's license (LGPL2), so that should be ok.
