Would be best to make good use of hasFeature rather than resort to 
hacks or plain UA name sniffing.

One could "modularise" the WF2 spec somewhat, and specify minor 
version numbers for the various bits? Call the extra INPUT type 
elements and the validation events 2.01, the repeat model 2.02 etc..

Or perhaps make a little hack for the name..
document.implementation.hasFeature('WebForms+repetition', '2.0')
