At least for lynx, the normal reason people want to lie is fear of
being given a "Please upgrade your browser page" because of their
unrecognized, or positively rejected, user agent string.  (Sometimes
this is actually not a server side rejection, but client side rejection
by a similar message in noframes or noscript.)

I'd suggest that that one significant reason why Opera has such a feature.
