Default Edid question

My computers are setup to a kvm so my concern is that at times I may reboot a computer that is not at that moment switched on at the kvm and therefore x will start without monitor specs. Should I use the custom edid option in xorg or is the combination of monitor vert and horiz refresh rates with the metamodes display size option sufficient? Can I remove the custom edid option or should I leave it?
