  Editorial polishing of abstract, intro material, terminology, etc. (#109)

Fixes #27, #28

Fixes #10

* Clarify security model and remove vestiges of "native API" language

Fixes #58 by adding verbiage in the API section about the two layers in
the WebAuthn security model. This discussion is ongoing with the TAG, so
we will open a new issue if there are follow-ups.

Fixes #20, #21, #23 by removing mentions of native apps and APIs, as
these are out of scope for this specification.

Fixed sloppy terminology usage

WebCrypto is not a reference for byte arrays
