Did you try the advice in etc/PROBLEMS?  Look for "Improving
performance with slow X connections".
It would be good if the exact X resource settings were listed there,
as they are for other problems.

As for turning off various decorations, I think if you disable them in
your X resources, they will never come up.
I think etc/PROBLEMS should show exactly how to disable them.

Patches are welcome.

  2) If the connection is very slow, you might also want to consider
!    switching off scroll bars, menu bar, and tool bar.

  3) Use ssh to forward the X connection, and enable compression on this
     forwarded X connection (ssh -XC remotehostname emacs ...).

!    (menu-bar-mode -1)
!    (tool-bar-mode -1)

!    Or for quicker startup, with these X resources in your .Xdefaults
!    file:

!    Emacs.verticalScrollBars: off
!    Emacs.menuBar: off
!    Emacs.toolBar: off
