  (face-at-point nil 'multiple)

is not correct.  Evaluated in w3m with point on a link, i get

==>  (w3m-current-anchor)

This is what I get for M-1 C-x =   (excerpt)

| There is an overlay here:
|  From 7785 to 7798
|   evaporate            t
|   face                 w3m-current-anchor
|   w3m-momentary-overlay t

|   w3m-name-anchor      [Show]
|   w3m-name-anchor2     ("showmodes" "gb_70")
|   w3m-safe-url-regexp  nil

`face-at-point' disregards the face text property, it only returns the
face overlay property.

I try to use something like this as a workaround now:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
 (lambda (face) (not (memq (face-foreground face nil t)
                      `(nil ,(face-attribute 'default :foreground)))))
 (cl-mapcan (lambda (face-or-list) (if (facep face-or-list)
                                  (list face-or-list)
             (get-text-property (point) 'face)
             (get-text-property (point) 'font-lock-face))))
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---
