An extension to allow all communications between the xserver and client to be captured adn for events to be inserted certainly would enable those applications to be developed in the future.

Just for the screenreader case: that's what ultrasonix used to do to get
the text from applications. But nowadays it's impractical as you just
see pango-rendered pixmaps flying by ;)

Anyway, yes, screenreaders need to capture and synthesize things, and
for that they use Record & Test.
