Yes, I understood. Just saying we should compare your use-case (fast failure
for unsupported usages) with the only use-case I can think of for a key with no
usages, which is where the app wants to use the UA's key generation capability
alone and will extract the key and use it with an algorithm in pure JS.

As I said, that seems a stretch, whereas your use case does not, so I think
your one wins here.
