I much prefer your wording.

With regards to the face, any chance of a new one? I know this is what
people always say, and that for some reason creating new faces is
sometimes frowned upon. The practical reason is, the mode-line often
has a different background colour to the main buffer, so a font-lock
face customized to look good in the buffer may look poor on the
mode-line. Eg for me, font-lock-warning-face is practically invisible
in the mode-line.
