This is where we need to be careful to apply the principle of data 
minimization, and to avoid providing an excess level of detail.  The UA 
or UA extension can help by acting as a middleman avoiding the need for 
the application to see all of the details.  This suggests that we may 
need additional specifications to ensure this works interoperably across 
different UAs.
