We could add another possible value for the
`TeX-source-correlate-method' option: an alist of the kind
    ((dvi . <source-specials or synctex>)
     (pdf . <source-specials or synctex>))
so one can tell AUCTeX to use SyncTeX in PDF mode and source specials
with DVI output.  This possibility should be documented because most
users (i.e., all those not using Evince) will want it.  In addition, a
Lisp hacker is able to set the correlation method depending on the
chosen viewer (useful when writing multi-system init files).  The
change to `TeX-source-correlate-determine-method' wouldn't be
necessary anymore.  What do you think?

For the record, now I have Evince 3.12 and I can confirm
SyncTeX-powered forward/inverse search does work also with DVI output
