It would. But it would break other people's customizations as well.
Do you really think that would affect a lot of people negatively? I don't. I
think that most users of hl-line (both of them ;-)) will appreciate having a
face to customize.

Subject: Re: hl-line-face should be a face, not an option
It would be better to define a face `hl-line' than to have option
`hl-line-face', whose value must be an existing face.
I agree. Would someone please do that, and then ack?
I apologize for sending two different bug reports, since this one addresses
both problems - sorry you went to the trouble of trying to fix only the
other one. This is the better way to go, IMO.
