I suspect that as soon as much of the hardware pocking is moved from
xorg to the kernel and X can be run as a normal user "X-based mingetty
replacement" will be just running a x term fullscreen in an
autoconfigured X instance.

Of course one could theorically write a much lighter solution using only
freetype (cairo, pango?) and an xkb-config parser
