I think that allocate(1) is mostly used in TX to manage audio like
devices, where /dev/audio is commented out in /etc/logindevperm. On
normal systems without TX, allocate(1) is not used, instead,
logindevperm(4) is used to manage all console devices. So IMO, it seems
no problem for our proposal, though I agree that makes somewhat worse.
