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

== add references to IANA WebAuthn Attestation Types and Extension 
Identifiers Registries ==
We have an in-progress Internet-Draft (I-D) that creates two distinct,
 but related, IANA registries, one for "WebAuthn Attestation Types" 
and one for "WebAuthn Extension Identifiers".  

the initial draft of this I-D is here..
> draft-hodges-webauthn-registries-00
> 
https://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-webauthn/2016Jun/0097.html

..and a subsequent message clarifying its purpose and applicability to
 the webauthn spec is here..

> [webauthn] Attestation type identifiers lack formal definition and 
matching rules
> 
https://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-webauthn/2016Jul/0070.html

..as well as this message clarifying the relationship between 
registries and specifications..

> wrt registries (was: Spec status)
> 
https://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-webauthn/2016Jul/0308.html

We can and should at this time add appropriate placeholder references 
to the WebAuthn spec draft referencing these to-be-created  
registries, and noting the existence of 
draft-hodges-webauthn-registries-00 -- this will hopefully mitigate 
misunderstandings among us regarding whether we are creating 
registries or not. 

A related but different issue is whether or not to have the actual 
specification of the presently-known attestation formats within the 
webauthn spec or in a separate specification. See #108
