I disagree with this.  I specifically asked Lennart about a /dev/tty0
being created by hand using mknod earlier: his answer was that systemd
does not support it.  In the most generic scenario, you cannot rely on
the sanity of _any_ device, and will have to go about hand-checking
the capabilities of everything explicitly.  This will add complexity
and slow down the bootup for no good reason.  As a rule of thumb:
don't over-generalize for no good reason.
