Can you please control your nastiness?

I answered your "damn" question to the best of my ability, trying
to guess what you mean by it.  I do not claim to be an expert
on `font-lock-face', and I did not mention it in my bug report.

I have no idea why you think `font-lock-face' is sufficient
for the feature I requested - how (you think) it provides it.
I'm not a mind reader.

I listed several ways in which (I think) `font-lock-face' is
unrelated to the feature and does not provide it.  Apparently
that is not enough for you.

In that case, please say how you see `font-lock-face' as being
sufficient to provide the feature.  What, in your eyes, is
the relation between `font-lock-face' and the requested feature?

If you do that then I will hopefully understand what you have
in mind, and I will hopefully be able to show why I think you
are wrong (i.e., show why `font-lock-face' is not sufficient),
in the terms you will have expressed.

Or perhaps then I will agree with you that `font-lock-face'
is sufficient to realize the feature.  But without your saying
anything about what you mean, I cannot speak more to your vague
(and now nasty) inquiry.

So far, nothing from you - only heat, no light.
