Yes, it should.  But since when has this become dogma strong enough to
justify overriding a port's portmaster, and thereby presumably breaking
that port until someone figures out how to fix the MI stuff, and does
it?  And, then, why aren't you also backing out, say, all graphics-head
console support for ports that don't use wscons?  Or any of the other
various cases where a port doesn't yet use the MI version of something?

Or will you be, and this is just where you started?
