The issue of transforming face attributes has come up before.

I think it would be a good feature to be able to tell Emacs that a certain
face attribute should be displayed as some other attribute.  An example of
bold being displayed in some distinct color is a good case in point.

Many telnet clients which run on color displays already do that.  The
MS-DOS port of Emacs before v21.1 actually implemented that by redefining
the bold and italics faces in the DOS-specific startup files.
