Yea, there seems to be room for optimisation. EFL does it supposedly better.
The x11 protocol has some ugly pitfalls.

But i don't think render performance makes such a big difference. 
Startup time and overall performance seems more important to me.

I think before we optimize render performance by throwing X away, we 
have plenty of opportunities to make big improvements somewhere else 
with bigger impact and lesser drawback.
