a wish for more faces

I've set `font-lock-function-name-face' and `font-lock-variable-name-face'
to plain black text.  This does look nice (to me) while editing some code,
say in C.  However, when i opened an HTML file, i found it quite unreadable
because sgml-mode.el reuses those faces.

What i think Emacs lacks is more faces.  While it is perfectly reasonable
to have the same faces used for highlighting different programming languages,
it would be nice to have a separate set of faces for markup languages.

This can be done transparently for those who don't need more faces.  For
instance, you can create new face `font-lock-tag-name-face' with no
properties set by default and make it inherit `font-lock-function-name-face'.
This way nothing will change unless you intentionally customize new

If this plan sounds good for you i may be willing to create a patch.  Just
let me know what you decide.
