In my scheme, which uses a variable (call it `face-mappings') to do face
remappings in buffers, there could be a special variable
`echo-area-face-mappings' to handle the echo area.

Perhaps minibuffers should inherit the contents of that variable as the
initial value for their `face-mappings' variable, which would make the keep
the appearance of the echo-area/minibuffer consistent, or maybe their
should be an independent `minibuffer-face-mappings' variable.  In any case,
more specific customizations can be done using `minibuffer-setup-hook'.

P.S.  All information contained in the above letter is false,
      for reasons of military security.
