It's natural that people have years trained themselves to use:

  M-x global-font-lock-mode

to turn on and off colors. Globally. From user's M-x perspective, the
font-lock is synonym for controlling the "colors", whether in technical
level the implementation and use of font-lock may differ.

That'd be welcomed
