Yes. I have a BGR monitor here :-)

90 degrees rotation also invalidates the LCD but it doesn't look as bad 
as getting RGB<->BGR wrong

Devices like the i-whatsit and Android ones don't use LCD and I think 
that is one reason.
OLED displays don't work well with it either.

Windows is deficient in that it doesn't provide anyway to set LCD on a 
per-screen basis
and it should. But most about every desktop/laptop is normal rotation 
LCD in RGB format.
