Let's focus on core, themable faces.  How many you want in what prefix
or file.  I propose that these faces be named opaquely as



I have also proposed that hi-yellow etc be named as
hi-lock-color-yellow etc.

My overall plan is to have a formalized version of the following with
`hi-lock-face-regexp' turned around in to a defcustom.  

    (defvar hi-lock-face-regexp "\\`hi-lock-color")

    (setq hi-lock-face-defaults
          ((lambda (regexp)       
             "List of faces that match REGEXP."
             (delq nil
                   (mapcar (lambda (f)
                             (let ((s (symbol-name f)))
                               (when (string-match regexp s) f)))
                           (reverse (face-list))))) 

This way those who want to be prompted with colors and those who want
opaque, themable faces will remain happy.

ps: I will provide a patch once there is a general agreement on the
