Entia non sunt multiplicanda.  Instead of inventing a dozen of new
representations of face samples, it would be better to use the format
familiar to users from using the command `list-faces-display':

  Use <mouse-2> or M-x help-follow on a face name to customize it
  or on its sample text for a description of the face.

  bold                abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ
  bold-italic         abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ
  border              abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ
  buffer-menu-buffer  abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ

The face list in this format could be inserted into the *Completions* buffer
and selecting a face name will use it as the completion instead of going
to the Customization buffer.
