Because switch-frame is there, and this is similar.

blink-cursor-mode is not enabled by default on ttys.  It can be enabled 
manually, but it has no effect other than running the timers.  Also, there is 
really no concept of focus-out or focus-in in a tty session, we can't know when 
we have or loose focus.
