I always wished dired would have its own faces.  How about the
following faces?

(defface dired-header
  '((t (:inherit font-lock-type-face)))
  :group 'dired)

(defface dired-mark
  '((t (:inherit font-lock-constant-face)))
  :group 'dired)

(defface dired-marked
  '((t (:inherit font-lock-warning-face)))
  :group 'dired)

(defface dired-warning
  '((t (:inherit font-lock-comment-face)))
  :group 'dired)

(defface dired-directory
  '((t (:inherit font-lock-function-name-face)))
  :group 'dired)

(defface dired-symlink
  '((t (:inherit font-lock-keyword-face)))
  :group 'dired)

(defface dired-ignored
  '((t (:inherit font-lock-string-face)))
  :group 'dired)

Faces that have no semantic relation to the standard font-lock faces
should define their own faces.
