Making two faces that were originally orange and green both orange(ish)
doesn't sound like a terribly good idea.

Similarly to my reaction to your similar proposal on the Gnus list -- I
don't think you can use the current very limited set of default font
lock faces for all the various faces out there (or "in there" in Emacs
core). Maybe you could introduce some more default faces to begin with,
from which the others could then more sensibly inherit?
