So thinking about this a bit more, I can see plenty of cases where the
 1:1 relationship isn't that clear. For example, desktop browser user 
agents strings can be identical despite widely different hardware 
capabilities. Similarly, third party browsers on phones might not 
necessarily expose enough information to identify the underlying 
device. e.g. Chrome on iOS has similar UA string across devices that 
run the same UA and OS builds.
