Surely you jest! Maybe once telnet can: (1) log you in without requiring
a password in a file, (2) handle remote window size changes, (3) handle
OOB data for (e.g.) SIGINT output flushing, and (4) have every machine
handle raw octet data correctly, then I'll believe you.
I believe that a properly implemented Telnet can handle all except (1)
(note that RFC-1073 just got around to fixing (2)). Not everyone agrees
that (1) is a good idea, although we obviously need a secure method
to accomplish the same thing.
It appears to me that the purported advantages of rlogin are due to
poor Telnet implementations; do you disagree?
