There are a few good reasons I can think of. Simply running an other instance of X-Windows takes up more resources. Most just run virtual-desktops to get around problems like this.

Adding the other entry to XServers does not have anything to do with running it on multiple monitors. There are three connectivity sections to every X window. Adding a line to Xservers (to my knowlege) does not have anything to do with running on two different monitors in a dual-head'd configuration. A second monitor/display would show up as :0.1, :1.1, etc. A third monitor would be :0.2 or :1.2, etc. Also note that the lack of a host name tells the X-Windows system to find the best way of communicating with the localhost. There are several other ways of communicating with the X-Server including UNIX sockets, IPX, etc. A simple way to remember it is Hostname:Window:Screen.
