We mix two different concepts here -- "console" and "serial tty". Linux 
console is more richly -- color support, different size, mouse support, 
screen history etc. -- but IMHO it is just an enhancement for the 
"simply serial-like tty".

If people actually want "just a tty" (plus some additional convenience 
unlike in "dumb" tty), then the re-sync of databases with X etc. seems 
not needed.

For me, just one font for more than 10 years... As if it is a dumb tty.

Noone will work on console "as under X" -- it has another target.

Well, just do not use console! But do not deprecate it for me (it works 
for me now properly).
