Maybe I should use “match-highlight”, and “selected-candidate”, respectively. 
The problem is that “highlight” is a bit too board, there are many different 
types of highlight: highlight of matched text during isearch, lazy-highlight 
for isearch, highlight for current selection in company/ivy/helm, etc, etc. We 
probably should make the definition more specific, so people know which one to 
inherit from.
