Ah, excellent information, thanks Matthias.

My goal here is to ensure I am able to drive a 1080p HDTV when I end up
buying one (when I end up affording one :)).  If it's the case that most
LCD monitors support reduced blanking modes, I hope it also ends up
being the case that 1080p-native HDTVs support these modes as well.  
But if not, it sounds like I'd be able to work around this by using an
HDMI ADD2 card as the bandwidth limitation is inherent to single-link DVI.
