That's one use. The other is to run X applications locally (using
Cygwin32) and display them locally.

It does - but not to the display it is displaying on.
For example, I have WinVNC on VNC display 0, and Xvnc on VNC display 1.
I can connect on my machine using vncviewer to pc843:1 to display X
applications, but pc843:0 is not allowed.
