Precisely because so many people care about network transparency, I'm confident that some of those people will actively contribute to efforts to support it. This is free software after all, it's not like we're helpless because Steve Jobs took out our favorite feature.
Perhaps some highly motivated people can put together a design for a kick-ass way to support remote access with Wayland that avoids the problems with the X implementation (too many round trips, too much bandwidth required). A remote access protocol that is aware of structure should be able to achieve much better performance than VNC.
