Good. Maybe the more people ask for it, the more chance it will be changed. Did you not need to change the line for /dev/pts in /etc/fstab?
No, I think /dev/pts is uncritical. At least on my local Linux system it has the same modes as on the pocketbook. You don't need write access there, because the ptyX nodes are created by the kernel (actually the devpts pseudo filesystem) and not by the application creating a pseudo tty pair.
