That doesn't sound very meaningful without some definition of these
concepts. It seems a "test" like

  if (obj.method_name) ...

is "testing" for "does the UA say the feature is there?" How would
a client side "test" for "is the feature there?" look like? I can't 
think of one that would be meaningful in practise.
