1. Are you even tried to do such in real live (tunnel X11 through
SSH)?  Not in laboratory environment and fast LAN, but in the real
live, through not so fast channels and with server in a some another
country?  Hint: I tried and found that 3 seconds for redraw Open File
dialog is too much for me.

2. Even inside one machine and one user always exists a room for
terminal.  It was not once and not twice when ability to connect to
Emacs server from a terminal (from console, if more preciously) was a
lifebuoy when local X session become mad.
