Just curious, but is Moblin's goal to run X as a special non-root user or as the logged in user?
Avoiding informationa leakage, especially keyboard input, seems like a difficult problem. Easiest seems for the kernel to stop sending data to already open file descriptors when permissions or ownership change. It's unclear how userspace could handle this without help.
