X11, Window Managers "Although current discussion of the Linux desktop tends to focus on the disharmony around Unity and the GNOME shell, the true revolution on the desktop is taking place out of sight of users. The Wayland display server is expected to reach version 1.0 later this year, and is seen by many as the long term replacement for the X Window System, with real potential to improve and transform the performance of the desktop for Linux users."

Perhaps it could be done as a separate proxy process (1 per remote app) that communicates with the remote app and redirects input/output. The compositor sees that process as a normal local app. That process could be used with different compositors without changes.
