(Maybe none will confuse. People use mode-line without mouse-face for 
 long time. Any color will improve this situation.)

How about menu items?
The color I defined is inspired by the Gtk+'s menu item color
defined in Blucurve RedHat's Desktop theme.

I don't have strong opinion about color if `mode-line-highlight' face
is available; I will set my favorite color to it.
