bzbarsky has just created a new issue for 

== authenticatorCancel seems like it can cancel too much ==
Say a client has makeCredential called.  It kicks off a bunch of 
authenticatorMakeCredential operations and waits.

Now before those have finished there is a getAssertion call with a 
very short timeout.  The client kicks off some 
authenticatorGetAssertion operations and waits.  The timeout is 
reached.  The client is expected to do an authenticatorCancel on all 
the authenticators, which will cancel those still-pending 
authenticatorMakeCredential calls.  That seems pretty odd to me.
