I'm not even sure you need Inject ATI, I do everything via Clover also and I don't even have it enabled. It may be Clover version specific too. I remember there might have been some changes with injection. I think at one point injection may have overwritten fakeID, but I'm not sure what the situation is now.This is what your clover settings should look like. I'm not really sure why people edit the kexts rather than just inject the card id. That way after updates you don't need to keep editing kexts etc.
I've been using this method for a while now, at least from 12.3 to 12.5 beta 1.
I don't duel boot into windows so don't have much experience of that side of things. I just needed this card to work perfectly in OSX, which it does even with the latest FCPX releases and other 3rd party plugins that I've used.
Personally I agree with you, I don't see any reason to edit kexts for any of this. However, I will say that getting fakeID to work might require a bit of fiddling on some systems. On my system the fakeID doesn't work unless I enable some DSDT fixes (AddDTGP, FixDisplay, DROP ATI DSM). So it's probably dependent on what the DSDT on your system looks like and may not work the first time someone tries it.
