"Back when the open-source drivers relied on user-space mode-setting, affected users could use a variety of options within the xorg.conf to override values and handle quirks within the server. However, with kernel mode-setting that support is out the window."

That's already supported. The drm will send an event to userspace when a monitor is plugged or unplugged and the ddx will react appropriately.
