We have begun planning for the first post-Windows 10 release, and within our team we have talked about how to create hidden consoles and make the console driver/API better all around. I don't have a timeframe yet when we might get to this but it has been part of our presentation to management about the backlog items we prioritized. Overall there are almost 280 items on the backlog and  this is in the "elite 25" that are being considered.

Many thanks for the update, one thing I wonder if you consider
changing isatty function to support Cygwin PTYs, that would fix a lot
of headaches we have with native windows programs running under
