Probably true. The other point is that some users may not be  
intending to mix and match, yet may not realize that by the time they  
choose to use quartz and no_x11 they may already have ports installed  
for which that choice should have been made. Hence, the  
recommendation is that you must make the choice to use quartz and  
no_x11 before you have installed any ports, and if you have installed  
any ports, you should remove them, then set the default variants, or  
else as David said, install a new MacPorts to a new prefix where you  
set the default variants and then install your ports.
