That's a completely different question than unix/localhost sockets.

That's indeed not the cheapest toolchain. But I believe we are in an XY
problem here ( What is your
*actual* goal? AIUI you want to run a desktop with Orca, i.e. you don't
care about the actual screen rendering, but you need to type on the
keyboard. How do you run vncviewer to connect to x11vnc actually?

Really, the proper and efficient way would be to make the Xorg setup
with the dummy driver just properly allocate a VT to get keyboard
processing going on normally. That's what you'd want some engineer to
spend time on.
