Is this only for Ubuntu, or will other distros benefit from rootless X server as well?

It's got nothing to do with Ubuntu, since it's Xorg devs that did the work. All Ubuntu do is implement it into their distro like all others.

Canonical just have a goal of implementing this into their distro by Ubuntu 10.10.
