Thanks, but I don't think I understand the advantages of this approach
vs the current one.  Concretely, why would we want not to inherit
from the 'default' face?

Also, doesn't your change force the line-number face to change
together with 'default', even if the user defines the face to not
inherit from 'default'?  With the current code, users are free to
define the face without inheritance, and that will stop update the
line-number face together with 'default', e.g. when the user enlarges
the default face's font or makes it smaller.  With your proposal, the
size changes in 'default' will always be propagated to line-number,
right?

And finally, if we do make the proposed change, shouldn't we stop
inheriting from 'default' at the same time?
