The situation from the perspective of FIDO and W3C Alliance is clear.
FIDO Alliance has developed a specification for FIDO 2.0, which has been
shipped after a consensus vote by the major stakeholders of FIDO to W3C
as a Member Submission. After AC review, W3C now plans to launch a
Working Group in March of this year.

As per usual W3C process, whether or not particular vendors support the
WG's work around FIDO 2.0 will be determined by a test-suite developed,
but we see no reason given the large amount of support both FIDO and W3C
has that there will be any issues.

Note the overlap between FIDO stakeholders and W3C members is very high,
i.e. Nok Nok Labs just joined W3C. However, we hope of course for the
widest participation possible.
