In emacs -Q, there are 63 faces. In my emacs, when I bring it up, there are
280 faces. YMMV.

Adding a face swatch that is 53 characters wide to each completion candidate
means a lot of unnecessary clutter for *Completions*. It adds nothing for
the user in this context to repeat the alphabet twice, even if
`list-faces-display' is "familiar".

Entia non sunt multiplicanda, indeed.
