My point is: why don't we perform a fresh comparison in 2?

Because the first time you call highlight-compare-with-file, it turns
on the highlight-changes-mode, which begins to mark changes, including
the replacement of 'b' with 'f'.
Yeah, that sounds nice to me: the user is still somehow in the context of the first func. call.


Why does it make sense to forget all  that information?
Because the user called the function again: this may start a new context, i.e., reset the minor mode in that buffer.

I imagine buf-a becaming a mess of colors with all those changes around. At some point the user may want to compare again the current status of buf-a with file-b.
