Having a system that randomly[1] flips out of the pretty graphics that a
user has come to expect and into some text mode thing that might as well
look like the system crashed, is not a particuarly good thing.

If you mean detecting a fsck and handling it somehow, and dropping the
15 second timeout, I agree.
