Yes, that makes sense. Not only for acquire, but also for OpProgress.
It's not that high on my todo-list anyway, but I can see that making it
somewhat harder for applications to have a quiet mode  (although as an
easy workaround, they can parse the options themselves and choose to use
a base progress class instead).

  Progress text even in quiet mode

Status in python-apt package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Operating System : Debian GNU/Linux 7.9 (wheezy)
  Package Name : python-apt
  Package Version :
  Architecture : amd64

  The display of an installation with python-apt is quite different with apt when the quiet option is set.
  This quiet option is very useful when we log into a file because it doesn't display the progress percentage.

  python-apt should have the same behaviour than apt, meaning the class
  "AcquireProgress" in "apt/progress/text.py" file should check and take
  into consideration the quiet option.

  (Sorry for my English, I hope you won't have any problem of understanding)
