I don't think so: if the deffacealias doesn't get loaded, then the old
face customization remains in place, and harms nothing (because it
isn't used).  If the file containing the deffacealias is later loaded,
it can fix up the info for its particular face, which is a simple job.

So old face customizations would gradually get cleaned up, except
those for packages that the user doesn't use anyway (and those don't

I think adding deffacealias is a good idea in general anyway -- we
could initially define it to simply do exactly what the existing `put'
