Reiterating what I said elsewhere (and hoping not to bore anyone with
my ideas): With the face-based approach the user would have to set
background, underline and extend for the highlight face to get that
behavior.  With the attributes-based approach, a user would have to
include highlight both in 'extend-background' and 'extend-underline'.
