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.
