 ;; We now allow a FACENAME in `font-lock-keywords' to be any expression that
 ;; returns a face.  So the easiest thing is to continue using these variables,
 ;; rather than sometimes evaling FACENAME and sometimes not.  sm.
+;; Note that in new code, in the vast majority of cases there is no
+;; need to create variables that specify face names.  Simply using
+;; faces directly is enough.  Font-lock is not a template to be
