Seems pretty objective to me...

Yes, in particular:

   "So you end up in some pretty hilarious situations, because
    X prefers width over height, so even though your monitor's
    1600x1200, the sync range is big enough to fit 1680x1050,
    so you'll try to fit that, and lose."

I interpret that as an X issue, not a lack of information in the inf file.

Telling other people what to do is about as divisive as you can get - 
and it doesn't work.
