Yes. In fact, XDMCP still works if you enable X listening to TCP
on the target machine.

Didn't you just describe it? If you want Xvnc running all the
time, then just start it at system boot time. Connect via
vncviewer. When you quit vncviewer, it won't quit your Xvnc
session; you can re-connect.

I'd advise mandating encryption on such a thing...
