make-xwidget doesnt actualy show the widget.

There is code like this in xwidget-insert:
    (put-text-property (point) (+ 1 (point))
                       'display (list 'xwidget ':xwidget id))

I tried to model the code originaly after what the various emacs image
modes did, mostly along the principle of least surprise. I think emacs
normally works like Eli describes above, so I'd go with that yes.
