This sounds like a workaround for a lack of CSS media queries for some
 document properties that might hold true when rendering on a 
presentation display.  What is a "TV" though?  Is it defined by screen
 size?  Pixel density?  Typical viewing distance? Input capability (or
 lack thereof)? Presence of HDMI inputs and a tuner?

Consider the following cases:
- Someone who uses a 81cm (32") or larger TV as a computer monitor on 
their desk
- A projector with smartboard or stylus input
- A laptop/PC connected to a TV by a wired HDMI connection as a second

Would these cases count as "TV" for the purposes of User-Agent?  I'm 
not opposed to this outright, I just want to be as concrete as 
possible as to when it applies, and then understand if that would make
 sense to Web developers.
