Well, as someone working on Emacs + Webkit integration I'd like to add
that I feel the current Emacs display engine has many strengths newer
systems shouldn't remove.

I use a graphical gtk based emacs everyday, and I also use terminal
based Emacs sessions every day. Hardened remote servers will continue to
actively not have any X installations for years to come. Terminal Emacs
sessions clearly makes life more liveable in those cases.
