    which would be fast enough, if that one read was a sequential read of all the data needed for booting....

    Why do people even bother suggesting a text boot? It isn't going to ever happen since they want to look like a professional distribution, not some hack job. Also they are targeting new users that would be scared to see text fly at them, especially when failures pop up every now and then. Last dell doesn't want calls related to users being scared or seeing an error message during boot, which you would probably see in text boot.

    They were talking about silencing the whole boot process (including grub) until X and working towards getting X started fast enough to display stuff. There were some major changes/ideas going around from the notes from UDS that are up on gobby, I've cut and pasted a few relevant/interesting ones here
