Server reset is defined in the X protocol specification; removing this
would make the server intentionally non-conformant.

Furthermore, for display managers, 'reset' provides a strong guarantee
that a subsequent user session will not be affected by applications
running in the current session.

What might make sense is to eliminate reset from the DDX interface and
treat it strictly as a DIX-level operation, following precisely what
the protocol spec requires and no more.
