The Elisp manual, info node "(elisp) Search-based Fontification" states
the following:

|      In this kind of element, FACESPEC is an expression whose value
|      specifies the face to use for highlighting.  In the simplest case,
|      FACESPEC is a Lisp variable (a symbol) whose value is a face name.
|           ;; Highlight occurrences of `fubar',
|           ;; using the face which is the value of `fubar-face'.
|           ("fubar" . fubar-face)
|      However, FACESPEC can also evaluate to a list of this form:
|           (face FACE PROP1 VAL1 PROP2 VAL2...)
|      to specify the face FACE and various additional text properties to
|      put on the text that matches.  If you do this, be sure to add the
|      other text property names that you set in this way to the value of
|      `font-lock-extra-managed-props' so that the properties will also
|      be cleared out when they are no longer appropriate.  Alternatively,
|      you can set the variable `font-lock-unfontify-region-function' to
|      a function that clears these properties.  *Note Other Font Lock
|      Variables::.

However, a font lock entry of the type


does not actually work. What works is any of the forms:

| (MATCHER . (0 (face FACE PROP1 VAL1 PROP1 VAL2)))

(Where the first two are of course equivalent).
