I'm with you for corrected & recoverable errors. The console is a terrible
place for those logs.

But it's handy to have fatal errors go to the console. They may make it out to a
serial port, or be stashed in pstore for later retrieval. Trace event logs that
are handled by some user level daemon are just going to disappear in a
puff of reset smoke.
