    That assumes running emacs locally, what is being discussed is if you
    are running Emacs remotley, i.e. over a remote X11 connection (e.g,
    ssh -X).

   Oh, sorry, my bad. I'm surprised to discover that it's apparently the remote
   application's job to ensure that it has a proper title when run remotely... 

Not sure how it could work other wise, who would be setting the title
if not the program it self?  If it is remote or not isn't really
important here.

   For ssh connections at least, I guess that emacs could check if a ssh 
   such as SSH_CONNECTION is set in the environment. But I'm not sure how
   robust it would be.

That would only work for SSH I think e.g., does GNU lsh set
SSH_CONNECTION?  What about telnet and Kerberos?  Are there other
ways, or protocols to do X11 forwarding?
