Did you actually try to use "C-u C-x =" in the minibuffer?  It works
for me.

But I agree that discovering the faces is a job best avoided.

I think it makes a lot of sense to have either global-font-lock-mode
turn off all faces (perhaps with minor exceptions, like mode line and
fringe?) or to have another option to do that in one go.

Try doing that in one of the hooks defined by startup.el, it could be
that the command-line args are processed too late for them to have any
effect on the initial display.
