Unfortunately this is based upon a set of bogus suppositions.

It doesn't (not because of X but due to the display), and system-config-display
doesn't let me set the resolution so the end result is that gdm isn't usable
and this isn't fixable.

And the bugs about system-config-display are filed, have been for a while.
Once they get fixed so you can set the gdm mode then I agree the personal
preferences for modes will be great.
