Well, the default (non-buffer-local) value for the variable could be t, or
the variable could have a negative sense, e.g., `inhibit-face-properties'
(I like the latter method).

I don't like the duplication of the face property; it just seems
unnecessary.  [I also think it should use a more generic name, not
connected with `font-lock']
