To emphasize the non-informative part is not useful, but a different
face could be used to *de-emphasize* it.  (Even if emphasizing the
word "de-emphasize" looks paradoxical, it's appropriate here :-)
For example, if the default foreground color is black, displaying
the common prefix string in gray will make it more unnoticeable.
