I would like that some special constructs are highligthed so that the
contrast would be suitable for assistive reasons.  For instance, in
current texinfo modes, constructs in pure tex do not get highlighted.
So I have some code that uses custom-set-faces in texi-init.el.

The Manual says that custom-set-variables must be only called once.
I can call it once in emacs-init.el, then call custom-set-faces
in each major mode init file where I would like a change.

Another possibility is to put them all together in emacs-init.el that
sets the highlighting, even though I would also have separate
org-init.el, texi-init.el, and so on.
