But it was finally pounded into my head that fixing this in Wayland is the job of a toolkit remoting library (hopefully one single library used by lots of toolkits), which can easily tell what text the application wants to render. This isn't fundamentally harder than having network transparency in the server, though I fear it will lead to massive inconsistency as different toolkits choose to do transparency in different ways :(((
