"Large" is a relative term :-) .. AFAIK, Nokia and a few other device
vendors provide the UAProf header, but unfortunately it just didn't get any
adoption from the (new) dominant smartphone vendors. The URL + dictionary
structure it provides is (I believe) way too complicated for what it needs
to be (RDF dicts + entire process to define them, questions about who and
what maintains them, and so on). I think we can get 95% of the value with
95% less overhead, and we do need a solution..
