Thanks, Eli.  But in (info "(elisp) Face Attributes"):

  An ‘unspecified’ attribute tells Emacs to refer instead to a parent
  face; or, failing that, to an underlying face.  The ‘default’ face
  must specify all attributes.

But all the attributes returned by face-all-attributes are
‘unspecified’, why?
