I don't think the "it" is a problem here.

But, `font-lock-face' is of no interest to
font-lock-default-unfontify-region, the `face' property is.

font-lock-default-unfontify-region does not remove the `font-lock-face'
property, it removes the `face' property.

font-lock-default-unfontify-region does not "manage" the
`font-lock-face' property, it "manages" the `face' property.

Sorry, for saying three times the same thing, but Drew cited this part
of the manual and it seems to be the reason why Stefan's request didn't
make sense to him.
