This hint serves solely as a backwards compatible shim for sites relying on "WoW64-ness" (32-bit app running in 64-bit Windows) as they transition from the User-Agent string to UA-CH. It returns a boolean value.

Motivation

We would like to provide a seamless transition from User-Agent-based use cases to UA-CH. The "WoW64" bit is the last piece, and is largely included for backwards compatibility rather than trying to design an API that exposes future binary and OS bitness differences.
