Chrome announced the timeframe. Safari already froze the user-agent header (except OS version and browser major version).

This seems to depend on User Agent Client Hints.

I'm surprised that the Client Hints proposal has been around for a very long time.

Chrome announced the timeframe. Safari already froze the user-agent header (except OS version and browser major version).

I'll just note that Firefox has shipped with support for this since FF58 (Bug1333651), although behind a pref. Tor Browser has frozen its UA string (except moving between ESR versions and OS) for most of the last decade (originally via the |general.*.override| prefs).
