And even then, x11vnc _STILL_ doesn't solve all problems.
Remote desktop vs. remote display

But even if it's not, so what? The statement was like "X does not allow that", and that statement is wrong, X allows that, x11vnc is an example.
When you need to run a single program remotely and see its window you can use x11vnc too (it can forward separate windows), but there're better solutions to that, like ssh -X (ssh -Y) or xpra/winswitch.org.
I don't understand all the fuzz about "network transparency". You either can do something or you can't. It does not matter what words you use to call that.

Of course it does not solve ALL the problems. But it solves those two, the most common ones. :)
