Multiple screens is going to lead to some fun in general with media queries. Nearly all queryable properties can differ depending on the screen being used. It would be... bad... not to allow content to query the capabilities of each screen it is using.

It is hardly unlikely that someone is using a laptop (close to user, high dpi) connected to a beamer (far from user, different aspect ratio). Or just a big TV sized screen.

And then there is the issue of hardware acceleration. Screens aren't equal, but neither are graphics cards. Ain't no rule that all graphics cards in a machine are equally capable. Heck, I bet that there are setups that have multiple candidate graphics cards that share the same screen with a software controlled switch. In fact, I hear that's a common setup on laptops.
