It seems an insignificant use case to keep compatibility with X on 
tty7 compared to the benefits of progress--in this case one less VT 
change on bootup means less flicker and faster bootup.  I've been 
using Fedora/Red Hat for 10+ years and once the reason was pointed out 
to me, I completely agree that this is a good move.  I'll adjust.
