Huh?  Are you saying that the only available testing ground is 
unsuspecting admins installing the server for the first time?  These are 
the worst people to be doing this testing, and they are the reason we 
try not to change the default config lightly.

This evidence should come from existing experienced admins who either 
have already optimized their BrowserMatch settings based on experience, 
or who are willing to do some testing.  People like Marc, for example.
