For modes in elpa, there is also the backward compatibility problem. So
they cannot feel forced to apply such new faces directly.

Asking for similar faces for similar syntactic entities in different
modes is legitimate. IMHO.

These new faces give mode authors a hint how to provide own customized
faces as long as necessary. And moving to the new faces will happen over
the years only.

Best regards, Michael.
