On the other hand, we shouldn't reject generality if doing things
less generally is a lot more work...

Actually, I don't see a great need to support the text-mode truncation
glyphs on X.  I would think that removing the fringe on X is an option
which will be used on special purpose frames (e.g. speedbar or ediff),
not something users would do in general.

I can confirm that!
