Nothing, quite the contrary, it is GOOD.

1. We still want "make term" to have nice readline capabilities.
2. But we want to make clear the requirements for a "testing grade" terminal.
3. And doing RIOT_TERMINAL=picocom does not work for boards without a proper tty (like jlink/RTT, boards in IOT-lab)
4. Having a RAW terminal means that the "nice" terminal can be build on top of this (like I did with rlwrap)

There are not many ways to escape issue (3).
