as you state correctly, the name [gembuffer] would be coherent with  the 
name [gemwindow], so the functionality should be coherent too. (imo, the 
same goes for [gemframebuffer] and [gemoffscreen].)
i foresee nameclashes with the multiple_windows (whenever they will come...)

could it be an option to make an alternative(!) [gemhead] out of this 
so people could decide whether an entire gemchain is onscreen 
([gemhead]) or offscreen ([???]).
if so, i would vote for something really clumsy like [gemhead_os] 
("clumsy" since i cannot think of a better name, not because the object 
_should_ be named clumsy of course)
