flpm has just created a new issue for https://github.com/w3c/webauthn:

== Terminology consistency ==
There are several places on the document what looks like the same 
concept is addressed by different names. In some cases it seems to be 
inherited from the generic terminology used in the FIDO version of the
 document. In some cases the same term is capitalized differently or 
abbreviated. Some examples:

- browser vs user agent
- platform vs client platform vs OS vs OS platform
- RP vs Relying Party vs relying party

There might be cases where the meaning is not exactly the same but we 
should be careful to explicitly notice those nuances.
