Uhm, yes, but...

an X server + a kernel stripped down to only support whats needed for it
isn't really heavy-duty. If you insist, netboot, and use only a remote
x font server, and leave all disk support out.

Such setups have been done with SUn3s, for example.

And you get modern X features, like, for example, authentication.
