We need to setup Sharepoint 2008 Foundation and the only server we can run it on is a Terminal Server (W2K8) what are the cons of that approach?

Well the first thing that I can think of is that you are lumping a lot of services together on one machine.  SQL Server (even express) wants to have access to lots of resources.  The next thing is that you will have users logging in locally interacting with the machine.  Just make sure your security is tightened if you decide to take this approach.

it's a powerful machine so it will handle the load, I'm more concern about unforeseen issues and yes I would lock down user and security

I can't cite any technical reason other than to say it isn't right to have SQL Server, SharePoint, IIS and Terminal Services running on a single machine.  But, if it is due to licensing cost reasons, that is understandable.  In that scenario, get the most you can out of each machine.
