As I understand, M-x font-lock-mode RET _is_ generic, despite the

I'm not sure how it works:  (a) The mode always puts properties on the
text, but they are ignored on display (depending on font-lock-mode).
(b) The mode looks at font-lock-mode and refrains from putting the
properties on the text.

But in the end, it doesn't make too much of a difference:
font-lock-mode is just a general toggle for the mode to do
highlighting however it likes to do that.
