Oh, that's simple. I expect thousands of QA workers :) to click around
and I wouldn't know if UDD likes that. With this solution UDD is queried
once per cronjob (how often are QA web sites updated?). It's impossible
to do that for every visitor. (I tried a full query once on merkel and
it lasts about 5 minutes.) And we need to store that info somewhere (a
simple txt file didn't really work here).
