One more argument: In most cases where xindy is used, a DVI or PDF
viewer will be installed, too.  The cases of a compute server that
provides (pdf)TeX plus tools, including xindy, but does not allow to
view the documents while you're logged in (via ssh or what) should be
extremely rare.  

And if you've got a viewer, you've got X11, anyway.
