I've now done this.  The new face actually used on the mode lines is
called `mode-line-active', and is the one that inherits from
variable-pitch.  This fixes the issue with the inadverdant inheritance
by header-line (and I'm use other things that inherit from mode-line).

This also means that you now have to say

  (set-face-attribute 'mode-line-active nil :inherit 'mode-line)
  (set-face-attribute 'mode-line-inactive nil :inherit 'mode-line)

to revert to non-proportional fonts.
