On Unix we have two servers. One of them supports giving coordinates for
which part of the (virtual) screen to export. The other always exports
the entire thing.
I don't see it as a must to be consistent with that though. Exporting
based on monitors sounds like a reasonable approach. I don't think we
should expose users to techincal low level details though, so a more
user friendly interface would be desirable. In what ways can we identify
the monitors? Is there a way that stays somewhat stable, and/or is easy
for the user to understand?
The Windows server is generally configured using vncconfig, not the
command line. So for the feature to really be useful it would need to
get some GUI there as well.
We don't have any maintainers focusing on Windows, so unfortunately it
hasn't gotten much attention. Feel free to add what you can to the wiki
(or build system) if you can improve things.

A: Because it messes up the order in which people normally read text.
Q: Why is top-posting such a bad thing?
