I have been seriously considering font-lock approaches but so far they
appear to be more confusing and less reliable than the alternatives.
For example, how would font-lock alter the quotes that Emacs outputs in
batch diagnostics?

It probably won't, you'll need a different function. However, substitute-command-keys wouldn't seem right for that purpose either (are there any command keys in diagnostics?).
