Yes, I think you're right, we need a way to specify a locale when creating a seat here. I also found the keyboard handling quite tricky to implement on the client side, getting the keymap from the seat, etc.

In theory, yes you may see some "tearing" if you are reading from the buffer as the compositer is copying in new updates, but from what I've seen it's not really noticeable.

Yes I see what you mean. Also, you may not event want to see cursors from other seats as it could be confusing.
