The 'console' highlight is described as Shell Normal Text.  It is the 'normal' text for non-error output *from the shell* (prompt and debug status), but not the 'normal' text, which is used for code.

Aside from this, the editor section uses examples rather than description, such as 'list' rather than 'builtin'.  I think the shell section should also:  "Traceback" instead of stderr (which beginners may or may not understand), 'program output' instead of 'stdout'.  Removing the two blank line will make room to put these on separate lines, like they actually are.
