There seems a be a general dislike for UA sniffing, but I don't see much
reasoning behind it. Why are people opposed to UA sniffing? What's wrong
with UA sniffing to do device detection and determine device
characteristics?

I understand reservations about server side processing, particularly when
you don't have access or control over the server?
