The fact that application toolkits cannot have shared memory or IPC between clients is not transparent to them, they have to know about it and have alternate rendering to handle the remote display case. That's the hair splitting that is going on which is leading to confusion as you point out, toolkits already have these alternate rendering paths and with SSH tunnels the user experience is pretty good. As long as the user experience is good we should be able to make better technical decisions as to how it is accomplished than the way X does it.
