In thinking about this further, I have to agree.

It seems that there is no way of doing this that doesn't inadvertently promote a product, while at the same time denying others, which is a slippery slope down to exclusivity and discrimination even if not intended.

When last this topic was raised, it was also pointed ut that code which does not have external dependencies, and which does not therefore attempt to overcome differences between user agents, is better for testing UA/AT behavior.

Thus I support the decision to provide examles that do not depend on JQuery or other libraries.
