Default ConnectedMonitors and DisplayPort

I have a CentOS 5.5 machine (260.19.44) with a pair of Quadro FX 3800 cards. Connected are two monitors via DVI, and two monitors via DP. If I turn all the monitors off, and restart X, only the two DVI monitors are configured, and the two DisplayPort monitors are disabled.

This is true even if I use:

Option "ConnectedMonitors" "DFP-0, DFP-3"

Any suggestions as to how I can make this work such that there are always four monitors enabled irrespective of how many are currently powered on?

I have an ugly hack workaround but it's not a perfect solution... Wire in the monitors with USB cables, and use udev to trigger an X restart when a monitor is powered on and nvidia-settings says there are less than four monitors

There really is a somewhat valid reason why I want this...
