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

== WebCryptoAPI's "normalizing an algorithm" cannot be done as part of
 async steps ==
https://w3c.github.io/webauthn/#dom-webauthentication-makecredential 
step 4 is running async, but calls into 
https://w3c.github.io/webcrypto/Overview.html#algorithm-normalization-normalize-an-algorithm
 which can run arbitrary script in the web page scope.  That's not 
allowed in async steps.  This step needs to happen before going async.
