We've had several bug reports about users not being able to distinguish
between vc states because the way they're marked is, er, "too subtle".
(I wasn't aware of the character changing until Stefan pointed it out to

We should provide defaults that make sense for the users.  That's why
font locking comes with colours pre-chosen by us.  If some users want
different colours, they can choose them, including choosing not to have
any colours at all.

Us choosing the colours on the VC mode lines is clearly analogous.
