There is also the problem of hardware limitation. My TV screen only can 
do 800x600, or my second TFT panel can just do 1280x1024 - but both 
certainly shouldn't render my (imaginary) 1600x1200 pixel main TFT 
Multi-head support with restrictions like these doesn't make a lot of 
sense. The current "combine mode" stuff of the Radeon and Matrox 
drivers would be enough for this.

Also, the graphics adapter may support hardware acceleration on the 
second head differently or not at all, etc.
