I even have something like ~8 years old code which does that universally for "every' demo.
- many (mostly RGB) demos hook on VBL, i.e. music, effects etc is hard-synced to 50 Hz (same as all Amiga demos do...)
- some demos (VGA/100 Hz) take advantage of the "double double lines", i.e. on VGA/60 Hz you would get a thin "tube" and not full screen
- some RGB demos take advantage of hires/overscan hicolour modes, impossible to emulate on standard VGA
So you see, in the end it's easier just to have a 100 Hz LCD.
