Why would we need that?  The related display code is in C, so we never
needed to expose this to Lisp.

I also don't understand the relation between this question and the
recipes you show.

Why is that a problem?  format-mode-line was not intended to be used
in display context.

I don't see tab-line-tab face, I see either tab-line-tab-inactive or
tab-line-tab-current.  And the button style and its mouse-sensitive
behavior follows what I see on the real tab-line.

But maybe I don't understand what you allude to here.  What is the
"tab" in this context, and what is "tab-line"?  You have one inserted
into buffer text and one displayed on header-line-like tab-line --
which one do you allude to here?  And why do you think what is
displayed is some kind of problem?

And here I don't understand what you mean by "overrides".

Why is that needed?

P.S.  I did all the testing in Emacs 27.0.90, the latest emacs-27
