There's an avoidable risk for a start: None of my login passwords, let
alone those for root, are written down anywhere. That includes not
holding them as data in scripts, config files or literals in programs.

With the way of working you seem to be describing it seems to me
entirely too easy to leave a root access path open by mistake when you
should not have done so. Worse yet, by using a Wine app for cross-user
access you're just providing a highway for Windows malware to spread
from your own sandbox into other user's space or into root.

Wouldn't have a clue: I don't use it and don't use Nautilus all that
much either. Neither do anything I can't to quicker and better via one
or more terminal windows regardless of what machine I happen to be
running stuff on. Graphical displays? Years ago I enabled X11 forwarding
for ssh and have propagated that configuration forward through the last
15 Fedora versions. So it doesn't matter which host I start a graphical
program on: I see its GUI on the screen in front of me.
In any case, if you're serious about running graphical programs on
remote hosts you're probably better off using VNC. Have you looked at
that yet?
