The actual capabilities of the monitor are more than often the limiting factor on modern GPU outputs. For example, almost any recent desktop GPU is able to display effortless a 2560x1536 full-color resolution on one screen. So, if any resolution is not available under X, maybe this is a driver problem (or bad driver choice), but IMO this is more probably a monitor capabilites concern than a driver concern.
Edit: however, such a tool would be useful for manual debugging, particularly when your GPU/driver enforces monitor "out-of-sync" settings on the output.
