But that never happens, does it?

Or if we want to be holier than the Pope, bug-reference-fontify could
check if it's the only function on the list, and then change its
return value accordingly.

It was designed for functions that actually fontify something.  We
need to either extend it for functions that don't, or change those
functions to pretend they do, but in a way that doesn't disrupt

I think it's too late to change the protocol, since it was in use for
too long.
