I'll defer to Adam for the addition of such a feature.
I'm not sure of the value of overlapping with parse-edid since a trivial
example (from my own laptop) shows that the output of edid-decode
Maximum image size: 29 cm x 17 cm
Detailed mode: Clock 138.700 MHz, 294 mm x 165 mm
1920 1968 2000 2080 hborder 0
1080 1083 1088 1111 vborder 0
seems to map very nicely to Xorg modeline syntax:
DisplaySize 290 170
Modeline "Mode 0" 138.70 1920 1968 2000 2080 1080 1083 1088 1111 -hsync -vsync
You'd still need read-edid's get-edid since it's well out of edid-decode's
scope to obtain raw EDIDs.
However, if your problem is not being able to produce a modeline from an EDID
*extension* (like DisplayID) then you'd need to fix get-edid *anyway* or
retrieve your complete EDID from the Xorg debug logs.

Test EDIDs would only be added to defend particular features but thanks for the
