X needs too much privileges to be any good on a secure machine. You might
reduce some risks, but I doubt you can get something you may actually
call "secure". Instead, you should run a P90 as X-Server and connect
using ethernet.

A bunch of vservers might be nice for switching between these
installations, but you won't (off cause) be able to run them concurently
if the hardware doesn't allow it. This might be handy if you're developing
or testing X, but as far as I can tell not for productive use.
