Nope.  I understand that you got a big pile of frustration like hell,
but unfortunately what followed this sentence can't get anything
positive done.  Debian clearly does have accessibility goals.  But like
all software, it does have bugs.  No, we don't intentionally make fonts
unreadable, there are just bugs, and the introduction of hidpi screens
really do not help.  And until somebody manages to find the time to fix
bugs, yes, there will be bugs.  It does not mean we don't want to fix
them, but that we haven't found the time to fix them yet.

I haven't ever seen such a thing in Debian.

Which ansi sequence does this?

The problem is that the tty defaults (as in: casted into hardcoded
values that really can't be changed) is to blink.

You can put it in $PS1, though.
