On my server I use both daily...
I run evolution, and Xmms on the server via XWindows (remote)
and I log in via vnc when I want to YAST or do most anything else...
I only turn on the server display (Shared via KVM switch with PC work
bench) about once a year. Theese are on exceptioinal case, usually me
playing with hardware... So yes your idea is feasable...
