x11vnc is fine: it's just an X client. It works with any Xorg driver.
I've used it with xf86-video-dummy before to test X server changes,
but that's not usually a useful configuration otherwise.

I don't know anything about x2vnc, but my impression is that it is
just an X client as well, so it should be fine too.

You're probably thinking of the old X VNC servers that hacked up the
server source tree. I believe those have been abandoned, but certainly
this proposed change won't hurt them any more than they already have
