Yes, and why would you assume that I assume that the previous form
would not be accepted by (an updated) `defface'?

Of course I assume the opposite, as I said.  I assume that you 
will DTRT for defface, to handle the new form.  `defface' is not
the problem I see.

And I was not.  I was talking, as Yidong pointed out, about
existing code trying to deal with a redefined `foreground'
attribute value (soon to be allowed to be a cons perhaps).

First, the idea was to use an additional face attribute; lately,
the talk is about a redefined attribute value, allowing it to be
a list (of two strings), in addition to a string.  IIUC.
Mille excuses, if I did not understand the latest proposal correctly.
