It seems to me that only "real" tty devices should be included.
In the normal(?) case the console is merely a redirector to some
other tty line, and is opened for input only in single-user mode.
In that situation, ttystats for the console would always appear
to be identical to whatever device the console points to, making
it mostly useless.
