Recently I come to know that with RandR which I'm going to work on
(after keyboard group issue), it seems heads can share regions, not
mutually exclusive. (For example, Daniel M German have the external
display have the same origin as the first screen. I don't know
Xinerama.)  Then you can't affirm to which head it belongs. That's
why I think only correct doc suffices for now.

If info sounds too much, how about noting it down in the source?
