FYI, I have the opportunity to discuss about it with Xorg people at

Yes. I discussed a bit about it with them, and they'll be happy to
implement an interface for brltty to access the content of the screen.
Which will actually brings us back on par with CONFIG_VT.

One important thing to understand is that we shouldn't be asking for
*more* than what sighted people have. When CONFIG_VT is not set, people
won't have early boot messages either, so there is no point in fighting
to get them :) All the solutions that a sighted person will use to get
early boot messages (enable CONFIG_VT, using a serial console, etc.)
will just be accessible as usual.
