Yeah, but it's proably an awful lot less likely (not that I have any proof,

Of course this is definitely true.

I posted an idea for per-buffer faces a while ago (a buffer-local variable
containing an alist of face name remappings; face lookup filters requests
through this alist), which Richard seemed to think was all right; I think
I'll take a shot at a simple implementation.
