I've just tried that with squeeze's -video-ati & -video-dummy drivers installed, and indeed, ati tries to find a screen, fails, and bails out. We've tweaked this already for intel/vesa fallback, so that not finding a screen doesn't put an end to the whole X start-up, and so that other drivers are considered. I guess it might be sufficient to do the same for other drivers (at least making sure ati and nouveau support that would make sense, I guess). KiBi.
