equalsJeffH has just created a new issue for 

== add invocation of authenticatorCancel to step 8 of makeCredential ?
extracted from: 
Assuming that a system has recognized three available authenticators, 
when a makeCredential() request is called all three authenticators 
will display a message asking a user to approve making a credential.  
[...]  what happens when the first authenticator succeeds? If a user 
selects ok / yes / approve, do the other two authenticators still 
display their confirmation messages and allow additional registration 
responses? Or should the client send authenticationCancel() to the two
 other authenticators after the first successful result?
To a fair degree this is all up to "the platform" (OS+UA+authnrs), I
think, although invoking authenticatorCancel on any remaining
issuedRequests entries /could/ be added to the last bullet item of 
step 9


..as you suggest, but others should probably weigh-in.
