The (above) being the sort of thing you expect when the EDID can't be
read, because it is connected through a KVM, for instance.  A generic

And what you'd expect when the EDID can be read.  An entry related to
the particular monitor.

You didn't say whether, for this test, you had gone to the trouble of
