I don't know how making use of the return value from a previous call to
lookup_basic_face (when default_face was assigned) is "spilling our
knowledge", but whatever; it's not a important point.

Hmm, you're right, that is a non-trivial change.  The implications of
that are not obvious to me.  Maybe we should delay this for post-24.1
then.
