What does this exactly mean for proprietary drivers? That the display
settings tool will be useless but they still can do stuff with the
proprietary tool? Or that they can do some stuff at the moment they
won't be able to do later?

In the former case, I'm all with droping 1.1 stuff, In the latter case,
it might not be a good idea.

Are we sure though that the proprietary drivers are the only ones
without randr 1.2 support?
