We try to keep the facets minimally styled for this very purpose.
But you're corrrect, the existing classes are necessary for the JS event handlers to work correctly. I don't envision this part changing.
That said, it's entirely possible to de-register FacetWP's default stylesheet (front.css): https://facetwp.com/help-center/developers/advanced/facetwp_assets/
