... but of course you're right that if it allows any pointer to be
passed (provided it's possible to say what it is), then the same
extension should be usable for passing "the X window" or whatever it
is you have.  Though that still complicates the social problem of how
to know what extensions are needed or supported, if some extensions
only work some of the time.
