If highlighter was created for the tree the node on which we right-click to show the context menu should become highlited. User probably expects this behavior.

Currently, selector and menu function independantly. Selected node is highlighted.

So context menu should deselect automatically ?

That's standard behavior if you look at the windows explorer for example. Current node you are working on is always highlighted. It shouldn't matter what button you click with (left, right, middle), as long as an operation is being performed on it user should be aware which node operation takes place on. What if I click between nodes, how do I know to which node I'm about to add a new child?

Maybe to avoid mixing selector and context menu, context menu can have it's own light selector. It would only highlight (with a different color, light green for example) a node when the context menu is shown.

User must extend controller to add context menu; extension can highlight (select) node if desired.
