It probably comes from the times when dual-head configurations were
still bleeding-edge, and when BIOS manufacturers assumed that if you
had a AGP/PCIe graphics card on your bus, you wanted to use it, rather
than the usually cheapo onboard chip.
Nowadays, NVIDIA's Hybrid-SLI  precisely aims to aggregate graphical
power from the onboard chip and add-in card(s) in heterogenous
configurations. So hopefully this trend will come to an end. At least
on NV mobos.
