To the extent that those apps call (and link) only against the toolkit
and not against an assumed backend, sure.  The strict linking changes in
F12 or F13 or whichever it was helped a lot with this, and gtk3 will
help more, but to pick an arbitrary example:

% ldd `which gcalctool` | grep libX
	libX11.so.6 => /usr/lib/libX11.so.6 (0x05f1a000)
	libXfixes.so.3 => /usr/lib/libXfixes.so.3 (0x001c1000)
	libXext.so.6 => /usr/lib/libXext.so.6 (0x00d42000)
	libXrender.so.1 => /usr/lib/libXrender.so.1 (0x001c6000)
	libXinerama.so.1 => /usr/lib/libXinerama.so.1 (0x001cf000)
	libXi.so.6 => /usr/lib/libXi.so.6 (0x0094e000)
	libXrandr.so.2 => /usr/lib/libXrandr.so.2 (0x0095d000)
	libXcursor.so.1 => /usr/lib/libXcursor.so.1 (0x009c8000)
	libXcomposite.so.1 => /usr/lib/libXcomposite.so.1 (0x001d2000)
	libXdamage.so.1 => /usr/lib/libXdamage.so.1 (0x001d5000)
	libXau.so.6 => /usr/lib/libXau.so.6 (0x006f8000)
