That's correct -- the NVIDIA driver doesn't support RandR 1.2, yet
(hopefully soon...). However, the NVIDIA driver should interact properly
with the RandR 1.1 compatibility layer in place in the X server, and the
display configuration page in nvidia-settings should provide comparable
functionality to RandR 1.2.
I hope that helps,
