See #2993 note-16 for motivation.
I have a concern: if a face with same FaceUri but different persistency setting already exists, does
nfdc register -P change the persistency setting?
nfdc register on an existing on-demand face would keep the face as on-demand, rather than changing it to persistent.

In #3866 it was decided that implicit face creation during prefix registration is harmful. Instead,
nfdc face create should be the only command that can create faces, while prefix registration command
face route add can only use an exiting face.
