The generation of keys based on the requested crypto parameters is 
currently specified as a "best effort" activity. From [Section 4.1.1 
makeCredential](http://w3c.github.io/webauthn/#makeCredential):

> The <b>cryptoParameters</b> parameter supplies information about the
 desired properties of the credential to be created. The sequence is 
ordered from most preferred to least preferred. The platform makes a 
best effort to create the most preferred credential that it can.
