Well, what you seemed to be asking is that it not match `(type tty)'
because there are currently too many defface entries that make invalid
assumptions about ttys.

However, it's also clearly not a graphic display, so it shouldn't match
`(type graphic)'.  [But this doesn't matter too much because no defface
entries currently use that.]

The code example I gave satisfies both these constraints.
