I'm pretty sure that in theory it can be handled, indeed.
I don't know how much work it would entail in practice.

I must say that I find it a pain in the rear (as a plain user) that gdm3
started to set XAUTHORITY rather than to put the auth data where god
intended it to be (i.e. ~/.Xauthority).  "emacsclient" is not the only
victim, so I'm not highly motivated to fix the problem on Emacs's side.
