But we ourselves are inconsistent in this respect.  E.g.,
file-name-shadow-mode does its thing disregarding font-lock.  So what
you describe might be your aspiration (which I'm not sure I share),
but it certainly isn't adhered enough in core Emacs itself.

More generally, turning off font-lock certainly won't turn colors
globally in the entire Emacs display, because there are elements, like
window decorations and menus, which are not derived from buffer text,
and therefore cannot possibly be controlled by font-lock.  If we want
a single command to turn off all colors, we cannot use font-lock for
