I’ve been wondering for a while now: would it be possible to create an
SDL backend for use on devices lacking an X server?

I lack deep understanding of how GTK+ works, but I believe GTK+ 3 uses
Cairo for most if not all of its drawing needs, and Cairo already works
fine on SDL. The missing parts, if I understand it correctly, would be
the ones related to window handling, copy&paste, and stuff like that.

Please correct me if anything I said is wrong.

Resistance is futile, you will be garbage collected.
