Ok, that is sort of what I am thinking of as well.
However, what is the reasoning for making the distinction between properties that are detectable server side (e.g. UA) and those that are device profile based (e.g. memory size) and are not being detected at all?

Either way they are "relevant" device properties.
In that vein,  which additional information would be beneficial here?

I think my intention is roughly what Alan describes; it really was the properties on which one needs to evaluate to produce content that follows the best practices; in general, this means detection on the server side, but it may also be a more arbitrary choice of range of targeted devices, some client-side adaptation, etc.
