Will that inherit the user's regular environment, but not the one that has been
set up by xinit? I'd say it just gets the regular which is in this case
useless. It won't give any cookie information.

That's nonsense. I've been hacking Linux/OSS since -93 and spent few
hours to solve that support case. If I would have seen a script name
i suggested in rpm -ql x11vnc, i've run it and get help for client
side command. I'd been done in 20min in such case.

jada jada jada, everyone here knows that mantra. And we already
stated here why it doesn't apply here.

Which is untrue. A misleading point here is, that x11vnc gives site
url with FAQ to stdout, which actually helps you with those cookies, but
that information, for example in kdm case is not the case in fedora.
It just leads one to wrong place and waste time.
I'm not saying that some particular person should come up with that script,
I can draft it myself to get started with. What I'm saying, that we should
make it inside Fedora. I'm also saying, that lack of it should not stop this
review to be accepted, it can very well be added once it's working.
