Until some user would ask to lift them.

Apparently, every user that tried to change the font understood that any resulting problems stemmed from their actions, and so we've never had any bug reports about that.

But if you never want to lift them, why not define colors instead of
full-fledged faces?  Then those restrictions are really carved in
stone and clear for all.

Well, there are also text decorations, and users should be able to add (most of) them without running into problems.

Faces seem to be a natural fit for themes, and they're supported by quite of a few of existing themes out there. Making the backward-incompatible change you're suggesting will break that.

Finally, who's to say the current limitations will stay with us forever? If Emacs defines a suitable API, the current faces should be able to transition seamlessly, while users will also gain the ability to change the fonts.
