can't think of a decent reason to, but you can add more tty devices easily enough. the devices are majorblock 4, minor block is whatever tty number it is, e.g. "mknod /dev/tty13 c 4 13" will create tty13.

May I ask why you need this?
There is the "screen" command which allows multiple terminals in one.
The KDE knosole also allows multiple terminals in one window.
