Is there any chance to unify them to a single Widget Type implementation 
that uses a low level graphics API (without an external Widget Set) ?

AFAI understand, MSE-Gui does this very successfully. They even provide 
a functionality called "IFI" that allows for remoting the interface 
between the RTL (and the MSE-variant of the LCL) and the "custom drawn" 
library via a stream interface.

IMHO this is a highly attractive way to provide an optional remote GUI 
to otherwise headless applications, while still providing portability 
and  support for Delphi-typical RAD-style development.
