global-font-lock-mode is usually meant to be the way to get that.
As you know it doesn't work for everything (tho it does now work for
compile.el and derivatives (e.g. grep.el)), but at least for buffer
contents it generally should and when it doesn't it's usually a bug.

For the mode-line/menu-bar/header-line and other such elements which are
intrinsically visually distinct, the answer is much less clear because
it's not clear what is meant by "turn off colorization".  I think what
it means depends on what was the first version of Emacs you used ;-)
