    What about `modify-face'?

`modify-face' is another interface to `set-face-attribute'.  Under
this proposal, we would get rid of both.

    I'm not too clear on `face-spec-set'. Is what it does now is replace only
    those attributes that are included in its SPEC arg, leaving the others

That is what I thought yesterday from reading its code, but I see that
in fact it calls `face-spec-reset-face'.  So it already does totally
replace any other settings for that face.

So this proposal therefore reduces to eliminating the
`set-face-attribute' level of interface for controlling faces.

    I hope that I will at least be able to still use

Why do you want to use `modify-face'?
