I made an earlier comment on that discussion thread:

  "This is an argument for the kernel architects.  We're not kernel
   architects, however -- we're distributors.

  "The kernel architects, for whatever reason, have decreed that if you
   want both vesafb and fbcon in a current version of Linux, you have to
   have them both compiled in statically.

  "Our choice is: do we want to distribute this or not?"

If he raised any other objections which aren't about kernel architecture,
or which are about the robustness of the system we deliver to the end
user or administrator, I missed them.
