console is a synonym of terminal. But console is a subset of terminal, and it's a useful one. For example, console the right tag for this OpenBSD question, and for several prior Linux questions — they shouldn't be lost amongst the more generic terminal questions.
I haven't seen “console” used to mean the more general terminal concept much, so I don't think the synonym is warranted due to popular confusion. (There are certainly many more questions confusing “terminal” and “shell”, and these are very different topics.)
So please remove the console synonym.
