Memo from Martin P Burns of PricewaterhouseCoopers

Not sure, Marc, I'd suspect not.
(the same is true for iCab btw, which now allows users to enter any string,
rather than just picking from a list)

However, if a user has changed the UA string, I'd suspect that they've
done so from a reasonable position of knowledge and would know
what they've let themselves in for.

It's kind of like the IT support position of a place I used to work, which
"Sure you can have admin rights over your (NT) machine (assuming you've
gone through the business approval hoops), but we're no' supporting it. If
you break it, it's your problem"
