True, the proper set of capitals to use here would be DDC/EDID. Most, if not
all graphics card drivers in xorg now support the
Option "IgnoreEDID" <bool>
(to go into Section "Device") which implies that by default, they should use
EDID data for determining the display size / DPI. I'm pretty sure I'm not
completely imagining the requirement for the dpms option to make that
actually work though, but perhaps it's no longer the case, or it's another
one of those config parser bloopers.
