    How might one go about identifying a DC compliant User-Agent?

    I wouldn't have the foggiest clue, but imagine it can be done. Since I've never had to deal with it, it's out of my domain to know the answer.

    Did a bit of searching for a way; have yet to fine even the slightest hint.

    Quite frankly, I can't even think of a way to theoretically do it, as a file request is just that, nothing more. The closest one could come would be if it were a priori knowledge that a given requesting agent used DC meta data.

    Which, I'm reasoning, a DC server running their proprietary indexing engine could do by including a special query string or hash of some kind in the request. The DC listed site would be configured to look for the query/hash and respond by loading the DC meta data into the generated page. This all seems doable. All that metadata is useless to anyone else.

    Why worry about its being useless to others? Easier and simpler to just have it be present for those User-Agents that do use it. IMO, "code bloat" would be negligible under most reasonable circumstances.
