Please add `face-spec-set' to the elisp manual.  It's the preferred
way for users/developers to redefine face specs (Or is there a better way?  Then
please describe it instead in the manual).

The functions defined in the node "Attribute Functions" are not enough
if I want to set face properties e.g for different background-modes,
like here:

(face-spec-set 'stripes-face
     '((((background dark)) (:background "grey7"))
       (t                   (:background "#f0f0f0"))))

And `custom-set-faces' is deprecated - at least, the custom file
warns to use it:

;; custom-set-faces was added by Custom.
;; If you edit it by hand, you could mess it up, so be careful.
;; Your init file should contain only one such instance.
;; If there is more than one, they won't work right.
