There is absolutely no reason why you can't have individual applications remoted. If people want Wayland to be configured to be able to send individual display buffers over the network rather then a composited desktop then that should be very possible.

It works sorta.
For your specific use case, really.
At my work we use a wide variety of remote desktop and remote application using Citrix and Windows and the idea that Linux/X11 is competitive with what you can accomplish using something like Microsoft Windows is ludicrous.
> I'm happy to believe that X11 is an unmaintainable engineer's nightmare fixed by Wayland. But if Wayland can't do remote X in some way then it's completely useless to every work place I've been to, big and small. And no I don't care a bit about fancy 3D graphics.
X11 can't even do what you _BELIEVE_ X11 can do. For most applications you really end up just shoving huge textures over the network similar to what people do with VNC, only much worse.
