For what I know, any value (among them, also faces) is kept in memory until
any-block keeps a reference to it or until a word keeps a reference to it with
the mediation of any context (use, function, object). A bug in parse made this
not always true for parse rule blocks.
Also without a word which points to it, an hide face usually remains in the
pane block/field if nobody remove it.
