The question is whether the corresponding faces should be simultaneously
removed from the `basic-faces' group.  If they are removed where should
`header-line' - which inherits from `mode-line' - go to?

`Buffer-menu-buffer' should definitely figure in the modeline group.
When I first tried to customize the modeline, `Buffer-menu-buffer' was
hard to spot and very undescriptive.  Since `display-time' is already
part of the modeline group I'd simply remove `display-time-mail-face'
