FWIW, I disagree.  I expect on the contrary that if the author wrote
(propertize "foo" 'face 'bold), he meant "make this thing bolder than
the rest" rather than "make this thing bold and override the default
minibuffer prompt's face for all other properties".

You can use (propertize "foo" 'face '(bold default)) when you want to
override the default minibuffer prompt face.
