They work, but font-lock (used by mail-mode/message-mode) overrides
such manually-added face properties.

I think the right fix is to change 'face to 'font-lock-face.  That will
make the highlighting work iff font-lock is enabled -- which it is by
default.  [If those highlights are deemed so important that they must be
seen regardless of whether font-lcok is enabled, one could add _both_
'face and 'font-lock-face properties.]

 But they also destroy the environment, to an extent so drastic that
 they kill all social life' (from _A Pattern Language_)
