Matthew, I'm sorry to disappoint you, but EDID actually can specify proper pixel resolution. DTD block has parameters named HACTIVE and VACTIVE which have this exact kind of information. More over, that extension you named (DDDB, more precisely) has even more possibilities to specify the exact low-level structure of your display, including subpixel layout and response time.
