Ok, so there's a way out. Hard study is waiting for us ;)

First I wrote the following answer, but I noticed it's wrong:
I don't mean the manual update is the final solution, but
(edge-flip-update) is anyway necessary (and it will *never* introduce
any inconsistency), and it can be implemented easily by 1.6. You seem to
want it now, so I propose it as one of goals for 1.6.

Even if there's (edge-flip-update), users have to call it manually
until we support xrandr, which we don't have at all now. (And replace
Xinerama? ... ;/ )
If resolutions can be changed per screen in RandR, then we need
complete rewritement?

According to Wikipedia, RandR still relies on xinerama, though the
latter is deprecated. Ehh, a conundrum.
