Why would an overlay be better?  I think conceptually, it's clearly a
text property, and there's an established mechanism for dealing with
this particular case (overlays are also less efficient in general, but
that's proably not an issue in this case).  Indeed, it's arguably a
_feature_ that switching to font-lock-face would make the highlighting
respect font-lock mode, especially now that the latter is on by default.

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