Default Question for TFT naming and console output

I have a question regarding the screen detection and naming.

I have 2 monitors connected to my 8800GTS, both with DVI cable and nvidia driver recognizes the one that is connected to the DVI port near the mainboard (pls try to imagine it as if the mainboard is down and the card vertical on it) at DFP-1 while the one connected to the port above as DFP-0.

Now what I find funny is that the console output (or if you want BIOS output) goes to DFP-1 monitor! Wouldn't it be more logical that the output would go to DFP-0 monitor?

This applies to 8xxx series only since before that the console output was going to both monitors.
