So I'll just add one other note...

People expect to be able to blindly type their passwords to the lock screen
and hit enter to get back to their session.  I know from experience users get
very upset if this feature is broken!

If we add a SAK key they definitely wouldn't be able to do that anymore,
but if we don't have a SAK key, there isn't really trusted path. Anyway doing
unlock from tty1 is a good idea for other reasons (like systemd-homed), so
it makes sense whether or not we pursue trusted path.
