True - but the digital pins can either be left floating, or can be properly terminated. The latter helps prevent crosstalk into the analogue lines, which manifests as... you guessed it... stripes. (And again, that crosstalk wouldn't be nearly so much of a problem if it were possible to get the monitor's and Amiga's pixel clocks perfectly in sync - which of course is why analog-only adapters don't cause a problem in the PC world.)
