Well, the main point is that font-lock should take care of all the
details of creating the uninterned symbols and associating them in some
very-easy-and-straighforward way with the interned names the user code

I actually prefer a function call like that, since I think it makes it
more clear where the value is coming from.  Also, the compiler is going
to bitch at you unless you add `defvar's for all the variables used
(even though it's font-lock that will be setting them), which means one
more place you have to worry about keeping consistent.
