well, all that is possible even with eight of vga or even less.
i see your point, but, i think there is no use case which fullfills your  
requirements -- as said above, everything is possible with even less
those which use linux a long time and still remember the small screens of  
bygone days and the virtual screen X offered, remember even the measure of  
annoyance the scrolling, zooming and moving of the screen included.
i have used several lcd screens with nearly the same physical size (15")  
a<nd different resolutions -- and i am convinced nothing beats resolution!  
the reasons have been named several times, there's no need to repeat them.

if the vga support xrandr and switching the qvga makes things really  
faster -- why changing hardware to qvga? leave it to the user ...

as said before: i don't think there is that kind of use case you request.
