  As one of the authors of our embedded server, I can unequivocally
  say that we are not interested in any resolution that requires that
  we examine UA strings.

  For our purposes, a solution that works within the context of the
  new spec and requires that the UA be upgraded to compliance with
  that spec is just fine.  I understand that from some other
  perspectives this would be less desirable.
