So add an explicit switch to tty1 in runlevel 3. It shouldn't flicker because it's not changing display modes (at least, I don't remember flicker switching between mingetty VT's; can't check right now because X->VGA switching doesn't work on this machine). Where's the problem?

You're having the kernel operate on Fedora specific commandline options
to start on a completely different tty, one that could be configured
by anyone locally to do something else entirely. (Unless you do it in
userspace, which means you jump away and then jump back for text mode,
which...)

Aside from the obvious question if this wouldn't start out as a Fedora-specific kernel patch, why do you assume Fedora will be the only distro with this problem? Or is plymouth (and similar technologies) expected to remain Fedora-only forever?
