I _STRONGLY_ don't agree (but that is good isn't it? :-)

You are _right_ in saying that the escape codes only should be
acten on in the console driver though.

printk _KNOWS_ what sequences it can handle, and can _easily_
be told to not log other sequences.

Example: "Hello %E3[K4world%E3[K2\n" (note: bogus esc seqences)
%En could be defined as meaning an escape sequence of length n.
