    X11 supports protocol extensions, so there's not much need for an X12. The X11 of today has many more features than the X11 of 20 years ago.

    Well my thinking is that X11 is actually too complicated and that a potential X12 would actually strip out a lot of the legacy support and simplify things quite a bit. I am told that X11 has a lot of cruft and things in it that no modern application would take advantage of.

    The network support should take a step forward, as it's one of the strong points of X. Something like dxpc integrated to lessen the bandwith usage by the protocol, png compression for normal images, and the proposed audio/video extensions.
