Not at present, no. But I have added this as a feature request in our issue
tracking database (Bug #192;
<http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=192>). Feel free to add
yourself to the CC list if you want to track it's progress.

Until this is implemented you can work around this by making the
Validator's User-Agent string be an alaias for the browser output you wish
to test in your browser detection code.
