Ok, I withdraw hi-lock-N.  As for other faces, I believe it is Stefan's
or Emacs maintainers call.  I am moving forward, after getting a
in-principle go from Stefan.

I gave a code snippet at the end of the mail.  If you had looked at it,
you will realize that I have done nothing which changes the status quo
but I have done eveything to accommodate my requirements.  I am the
proposer, right?

Please provide specific feedback on the snippet rather than registering
a broad objection.  I have made an effort to understand the
"I-want-color" camp and I have also openly acknowledged that the
"I-want-color" camp have valid and sensible arguments.
