Compatible Third-Party Displays?

I recognize that FW is focusing on a lot of other, more basic things before they release new kinds of displays themselves. But I know aside from folks who want or need touchscreens (like me) there’s been a movement for a matte finish screen, and I think I’ve seen a few people asking about a lower-res screen to save on battery life.

What seems like the logical thing to do would be to see if aftermarket screens for other laptops would be compatible. The internal display port is a 40-pin, but I don’t know how universal that is, or if the location on the mainboard would work for other brands’ displays. Specs for the display are here: Framework | Display Kit. Would anyone with a Framework be willing to test something else for compatibility?
