Why is it not possible to add custom resolutions with ATI drivers without doing some kind of risky registry hack or flashing the EDID of the monitor? Nvidia is vastly superior in that department

What do you mean custom resolutions?
Individual monitor, non-standard resolutions ?

Why would you even want that ?

WHAT ARE YOU SMOKING?!

Of course it's possible....

1: Desktops and displays
2: Lower left corner, select dispaly, configure on the drop down menu
3: HDTV support tab.
4: Select resolution to begin from and press add. Now you're creating a custom resolution....

By custom resolutions I mean user-defined resolutions and refresh rates.
Let's say I have an ATI 5870 graphics card and Bad Company 2 looks horrible when maxed out (jagged edges everywhere). My monitor natively only supports 1920 x 1080 @ 60 Hz.
Now I want the game to be rendered at 2560 x 1440 @ 60 Hz and have the graphics card scale the image back down to the native resolution.
This technique is called Downsampling, it's a way to fake anti-aliasing and it yields very good results.
In the nVidia control panel, the user is able to set ANY custom resolution, even one that isn't supported by the monitor.
Why can't ATI implement this feature?

You can use HDMI + Overscaling options in CCC. But why go 2560x1440 instead of 1920x1080 with 8x AA? you would have a clearer picture, and smoother frame rates....

I don't think you understand what I mean... but that's ok. By the way, I think you mean underscan.

I guess I will just have to go nVidia next time, if I want to be able to set my monitor to ANY custom resolution, not just those that are pre-defined in the HDTV tab in catalyst.

You can create custom resolutions in CCC, if they are supported by the monitor.

I was saying that 1920x1080 8xAA is lot better than 2560x1440 no AA.

It also takes less power to run....

My problem is that Anti aliasing doesn't properly work in Bad Company 2, therefore I would like to be able to downsample the image and create a fake anti aliasing effect. But unfortunately ATI imposes all these restrictions on the end-user...

If you take 2560x1440 no AA (or just a little bit of AA) and scale it back down to 1920x1080, it will look just as good as 1920x1080 8xAA or even better.

There is a program out there called SSAA Tool and it's able to successfully downsample games, but unfortunately it is not compatible with punkbuster, that's why I was trying to achieve the same effect manually but I ran against a wall called Catalyst...
