Personally I prefer the current defaults (probably a matter of what
I'm used to). In particular I do not like the use of bold as the only
distinguishing feature of font-lock-builtin-face (I deliberately choose fonts 
without bold and italic variations, as they look awful at the small
font sizes I work with) and there is no distinction between a
constant, a variable-name and function-name in your suggested scheme,
nor between a builtin and keyword (although I am not sure what the
syntactic distinction is there myself).
