Can't we have a deffacealias?  It would feel cleaner to me.
Among other things, it would allow people who see such a form to do C-h f to
get doc about it.  Which is to say, we'd get to document it (the doc could
explain whether the alias works when put on the `face' text-property, or
whether it only affects Custom face settings).
