REST API: Store the user_agent by default in the comments API

The comments API currently doesn't store the user_agent by default, unless the client specifies it.

As the user_agent field is a user-controllable field, I see no issue with allowing it to be set through the REST API parameters, however believe that it should default to $_SERVER['HTTP_USER_AGENT'] when not specified by the client.

Needs tests and missing an operator space: !empty! empty. Otherwise makes sense to me.
