Just nullify the firstdiff face and it becomes better! And you still
"see" the first diff via very advanced visual differentiation
techniques available today in most mammal's brains.

I do believe first-difference continues to play a useful role. Especially in situations where input's suffix is non-empty.

Company uses the same face for flex and common, a drab red
that is barely visible against the default yellow.  But it's consistent.

I think it's quite visible. If you have problems with its contrast, please file an issue. I'm surprised, though, since I generally prefer higher-contrast themes.
