Currently, VNC will only remote the entire desktop.

In principal this modification could be made.  The main limitation is
really in establishing which windows to remote - is it always sufficient
to remote all the windows created by a particular application, for
example?  It's not quite as simple as just remoting all the windows as if
they were separate desktops.  Also, what would happen when a window was
re-sized?  It would make an interesting and probably quite useful
extension to the existing system, though, if someone decided to put the
time in to try it. :)
