I'm not sure if I understood your goals correctly.

Do you want...

a) the "booting" splash screen outputs in just one of your displays 

or you meant

b) once the system boots and your desktop environment loads you want to 
control what screens holds the main data?

As for "unadorned" you meant "no icons, just background image/solid 
desktop"? :-?
