You missed the part about X clients not being installed in the first
place. Many installations do not. For example, none of our servers have
them installed (NASA Kepler Science Operations Center).

Also, in other cases, although I could run an X Emacs client over a
tunneled connection, it's too slow to be useful and that's why I use
terminal Emacs.

I've used tramp for opening files, but it seems that it would be painful
if impossible for replacing an interactive shell session. Can you use it
this way?

I could not live without terminal-based Emacs (and emacsclient -nw).
Well, I could live, but I couldn't edit :-).
