During our past tele-con calls, we discussed the nature of attribute
storage.

As presented by myself and Vijay, it was explained how arbitrary attribute
storage may not be supported by the underlying APIs, and how in a number of
cases, including smart cards, the user may not be able to modify the
storage.

As such, I believe consensus was reached that there does not need to be any
normative text regarding where attributes are stored. It is expected, for
example, that user agents may implement their own storage solutions for key
attributes, while still exposing keys that may be provisioned through other
means (eg: smart cards, pre-provisioning).

Are there any objections to closing ISSUE-20 with no change to the spec?
