Yep.  Just like VT100 set the standard for escape sequences for text
terminals, the 4010 set the standard for escape sequences for graphics
terminals.  Hell, even xterm has 4010 support!  Pretty much any terminal
that did graphics until X terminals did 4010 support of some sort.  Even
later Tektronix terminals (including the raster ones) all have 4010
support.
