Agreed the present overall state is messy and we need to clean it up.

WRT the attested credential public key:

 a CBOR map of the JsonWebKey structure (using binary fields not DER 

A good question for implementors -- offhand it seems the two top 
choices are the CBOR-encoded JWK suggestion above, or traditional 
DER-encoded ASN.1 type of RSAPublicKey from 
https://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-moriarty-pkcs1-03#appendix-A.1   -- 
i could be convinced to do either one.  this is overall a question for
 server-side implementors, yes?  the client-side stack should just 
regard this as a blob as noted in #244 yes?
