I like the idea of dual monitors being a blocker in general, but as
this thread shows, it gets complicated quickly. I think if we do this,
it should be very narrowly scoped. The two main use cases we need to
worry about are:
1. Laptop with an external monitor (and does it have to be directly
attached, or would we block if a monitor attached via a docking
station doesn't work?)
In this case it needs to be clarified whether we're talking about a laptop
which has a single graphics card, or whether it might have multiple (as is
often the case nowadays, unfortunately most likely involving an Nvidia
card). In case of multiple, whether a single card working is sufficient for
passing that criterion (provided it is possible to toggle between them in
bios or using specialized tools) or whether both must work even if
toggle-able. If they can't be toggled, whether that situation is also
covered (this is the most complicated and most often broken scenario).
Docking stations also need to be mentioned, yes.
