I think it should be implemented as Windows has it, where the console mode
equivalent of DirectDraw's "exclusive" mode is the hardware text mode. In
other words, that alt-enter causes a console mode program to become
full-screen in the hardware text mode.
As for the console system being a native part of the system, there is no
need for that other than for things like an equivalent of rconsole... and
you could always just make a graphics mode rconsole with a basic VGA driver.
