This could be alleviated by using less intrusive face attributes for
the hl-line face.  For example, one could use underline, or
bold/slant, or box, or something else that doesn't override the
colors, while still making the current line stand out on display.

I think I disagree, but then I don't use hl-line in my routine usage,
so maybe my opinion isn't worth much.
