pnd.pdf covers the *hardware* interface between the computer and monitor
that makes DDC possible. It makes a reference to the DDC specification for
software implementations and command sets.

Since Debian is making a distribution, not video cards and monitors, this
information doesn't really apply to us.

If you can find the DDC specification on Vesa's site without paying money,
we'd all be very happy. :)
