Making this 'face property on random symbols special is bad design. It

Are you saying that no facilities in Emacs should reserve global
symbols for their own implementation details?  If so I agree, it is bad

Yeah. With respect to plists, it's okay to attach public symbols to private plists, and it's okay to put private symbols on public plists, but putting public symbols on public plists is creating a bug machine.
