  It's specific to whether not the device represents the graphics
"console" of the system.  For the virtualized system, or the
multi-head/multi-user system, it seems to me that it's a property of the
"location" of the device.
  I don't claim the device is the best interface to defer this to.
  Maybe just a general xorg.conf option to do it or not is enough.
