The problem is that it doesn't *switch* to a text console. It kicks the
VGA device into shape and if you want to continue, the system is very
likely to end up in DDB soon enough again.

        Could it revoke all access to the relevant video device, so next
        time X tries to read/write the hardware it aborts?
