DMS59 Connector is Back Again?

With lower profile cards in demand for HTPC users, could the DMS59 (Dual Monitor System 59) be revived? This single 59pin external interconnect could transmit 2 DVI singles at a time, and have that optional capability to plug in an additional adaptor that can split the pin-out into any dual output combination of two DVI and two 15-pin D-sub outputs. “At CeBIT 2006, GeCube will announce its low profile Radeon X1600 Pro adaptor with a single DMS59 output.  Corporate product managers from the company hinted to us that the X1600 Pro is just the first of a series of cards from GeCube that will reintroduce the DSM59 interconnect — future plans include a dual DMS59 Radeon that would effectively allow one to connect four displays to a single card.  The Radeon X1600 to be announced does not support HDCP compatibility, but if it did teh DMS59 interface would have no problem transmitting the signal we are told.”
