What one should do is to make sure the kernel will select the correct crap for killing, and that it resets the VT (and the keyboard translation mode, damn PeeCee legacy crap) to something that can work with getty for when X doesn't come back up. And to have init or another process supervisor bring gdm/kdm back to life.
For all I know, it even already does the above :-) I should try it one of these days.

Obviously, the choice of CTRL, ALT, and BACKSPACE for this purpose is sub-optimal for many reasons, not least of which is that they are often remapped.
