I donot wish to start a debate about or about eficiency, but...

Form a user's point of view, I prefer VNC even when making linux to
linux over a local network.

The only time I use remote-X, is when I only want a single window,
after I've started ssh session.

But like I said, I'm not knowledgeable about the topics being 
discussed, I'm programmer who happens to use linux/X-Windows...
