I can't imagine other useful face attributes for the `link' face
than underline.  For example, changing its foreground color will
make different faces inheriting from it indistinguishable (like
visited and unvisited links in Info, or file names and line numbers
in grep and compilation).

So I see the `link' face mainly as a way to turn link underlining off.
But then it should be possible to do that on a per-buffer basis to
turn underlining off in some modes (e.g. in grep and compilation)
but leaving it in others (e.g. in Info).
