X protocol proxy / X multiplicator?

I was wondering if it was possible to display an application on more 
than one display - and hence the "X protocol proxy / X multiplicator" 
title of this post.

This is how I imagine it: X server
running an application
    |          |
client 1    client 2
both running the same application
started on X server

So, any change made to the application (or its interface) on client 1 
(, would result in showing that change on client 2 (, 
and vice versa.

More - new clients could connect to it, and old clients could disconnect 
- and the same one application would be still running.

Is it possible with X protocol?
