We had had a VGA PCB HAT developed specifically for this and achieved passes with EN 55032:2015 and BS EN 61000-4-2, meaning it can be CE marked (home or business use) with appropriate manufacturing techniques and indeed FCC marked for Class A (business use). However, there are further costs to bring it to market. Right now there is no market because there is no product that could use it to run dual-head RPi, because of the framebuffer driver problem. wtware might be able to solve that, but even if they (or the kernel guys) do, the product will be about the same price for the end user to buy as a second Raspberry Pi.

This is why, notwithstanding the not insignificant money invested in that PCB already, I've personally come to the conclusion that using a second RPi with network master/slave configuration is the way to go. Of course that then opens up three or four (or more!) screens and each gets an hdmi interface and its own GPU too.

I do agree that a dual(+) screen RDP facility is required functionality but there are lots of hurdles to making a VGA or HDMI interface for the RPi, which in any already has all of that built-in and likely costs less money. It just needs software :)
