Okay, there's been enough talk about it lately that I finally tried it.
My Octane boots just fine without a framebuffer installed, so long as
the PROM is configured with the console on "d0" instead of "g".
In fact, the machine boots without any XIO carrier at all. I don't have
the card completely removed--just in there enough to hold the air
pressure steady, but not enough to contact the frontplane.
