I think we need to rethink the faces names and purpose.  The basic 
font-lock faces are currently suited to source code, but not for totally 
different purposes such as Grep and Dired.

We could either (a) add a few additional faces, or (b) reorganize the 
faces entirely, creating separate groups for each class of major modes 
(like all text modes etc.)

FWIW, this is too much of a change to do now, especially since colors are 
easily customizable.
