Speaking of "Lessons from Unix"
Plan 9 provided /dev/cons, /dev/mouse, and /dev/draw devices for keyboard input, mouse input, and screen RPCs. The 8½ (later rio) window manager would rebind these devices for each process opening a new window (plus a few others for window management) and would act as a multiplexer. Network transparency becomes just mounting a filesystem remotely.
Sounds not too far off of what you're suggesting here.
