Yeah.  It seems like whenever somebody asks for stuff in this area, it's
always "make all those colours go away", not "make syntax highlighting
stop".  For instance, I would assume that people would still want links
in eww to be underlined even if nothing colourful happens.

So perhaps Emacs just needs another general setting here?  `color-mode'
(or something).  If that (buffer-local) variable is nil, redisplay would
simply ignore all foreground/background colour specs.

This isn't really about syntax highlighting, but about how some people
prefer monochrome buffers, I think.
