The next one I want to try is the Wandboard Dual (http://www.wandboard.org/), based on a Freescale SoC that is supposed to be better documented than the Allwinner offerings.

Actually dvi monitor support for Allwinner A10 devices has been fixed a while back. I know because I spend en entire weekend banging all the bits in the hdmi controller 1 bit a time unitl I found one which dropped it from hdmi to dvi mode

The A10 socs are being actively support by the linux-sunxi community, see:

If you want to give things a shot with a more recent linux-sunxi kernel + distro, try the ready-to-use (just dd to an sdcard) Fedora 18 images I maintain:
