I think it's a question of the user interface, not the display technology.
If we want the same key to automatically do 'execute' or 'next line' as
appropriate, we need a way of distinguishing which to do. In the notebook,
we use shift-return/ctrl-return for execute, so it's not required. But for
a console interface, having return automatically execute or produce another
line is extremely convenient and intuitive.
