I can confirm that - my new monitor was detected well by the xorg after
removing all the monitor settings (I left the "Identifier" field of course, and one
option, but don't know if this option is necessary). The monitor section looks
like this:

Section "Monitor"
    Identifier     "Monitor 0"
    Option         "DPMS"

But for the old monitor the other settings were needed.
