When the great consolidation occurs, the V240 will be the lone SPARC in the
room, and I'd like to be able to put a head on it since when I run it, it will
primarily be as a desktop, not a server, and I'd like to be able to run it
without needing a second machine to act as terminal/xterminal.

For production use, I'm with you - the framebuffer doesn't make sense...
