How about this as a "squeezed" version:

Template: fglrx-driver/install-even-if-unsupported-gpu-exists
Type: boolean
Default: false
_Description: Install fglrx driver despite unsupported graphics card?
 The following graphics chipsets found in your system are no longer handled
 by the fglrx driver:
 You may wish to keep fglrx (for instance to drive some other card), but the
 above cards require the free Radeon driver in the package
 xserver-xorg-video-radeon. Before that driver can be used you must remove
 fglrx configuration from xorg.conf (and xorg.conf.d/) and purge (not just
 remove) the fglrx-driver package.
