JavaScript function that returns true or false, based on the status of whether doNotTack is enabled.

/**
 * Returns true or false based on whether doNotTack is enabled. It also takes
 * into account the anomalies, such as !bugzilla 887703, which effect versions
 * of Fx 31 and lower. It also handles IE versions on Windows 7, 8 and 8.1,
 * where the DNT implementation does not honor the spec.

 * @see https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1217896 for more details
 * @params {string} [dnt] - An optional mock doNotTrack string to ease unit testing.
 * @params {string} [userAgent] - An optional mock userAgent string to ease unit testing.
 * @returns {boolean} true if enabled else false
