I said there's no notion of "monitors" in Emacs, and I didn't mean
there's no support for multiple monitors in X11.  Apple X11 uses
Xinerama, and I already mentioned this extension in the link below.

No.  Design and introduction of a new notion should be done really
carefully, and such kind of changes should be avoided for Emacs 22.2.
If you want to suggest a design of the notion of "monitors", Emacs 23
would be a good chance.
