You'd have to go back to an EGA monitor with 350-scanline native
resolution to get guaranteed support for a number as low as 21000 Hz, 
even they might not go as low as the 15750 for NTSC.

There used to be some multisync (as they called them) monitors that were popular with the Amiga crowd up through the late 90s that would sync down to 15Khz.  There were often the big "multimedia" monitors that would also work as televisions.

There are also many scandoubler products that can input a 15Khz RGB signal and output a 31Khz one that were also predominantly created for the Amiga.

Today there are products that can take in a composite or Y/C signal and output a VGA signal.  But they don't do 15Khz RGB in.

Ideally you would want to build in a scandoubler circuit otherwise people will be limited to these Amiga-capable multisync monitors or old 15Khz-only monitors like my C= 1084 or used coinop monitors.
