Yeah, but I was asked on #emacs whether it was acting as a toggle,
perhaps just to confirm that there was no bug introducing toggle
behaviour where it wasn't expected.

Not honouring explicit instructions to turn off highlighting globally
in emacs sounds like a poor design decision to me. I consider this an
important bug.

Meanwhile, it's possible to use this workaround:

(add-hook 'python-mode-hook
  '(lambda () (global-font-lock-mode 0)))
