Stupid question: are there now actually x86 boards that do *not* have a real

an external connector of course, but they can be added easily unless it is
a notebook).

A quick look around suggests that some of the very high end gaming ones don't. Also assuming users will actually be able to find a cable to actually hook up the motherboard COM port is optimistic. You would probably have to get one second hand these days and if I remember correctly there are 2 incompatible pinouts for the 10 pin header. :(
