Directories are highlighted by white color, which takes priority over
"core" highlighting.  Also, directories have "/" in the type field.  I
think it's enough to prevent any confusion.

Of course, once mc starts highlighting any files, somebody will ask to
highlight more files.  Unfortunately, the existing code is not very easy
to extend and keep in a good shape, and code bloat isn't going to help.
