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

== Clarify wording on authenticator selection ==
8.2 Authenticator Selection: The text is unclear. Instead of "If the 
client supports the Authenticator Selection Extension, it MUST use the
 first available authenticator whose AAGUID is present in the 
AuthenticatorSelectionList" I would suggest: "If the client supports 
the Authenticator Selection Extension, it MUST use the first 
authenticator from the AuthenticatorSelectionList that is available in
 the system".

Rationale: the list obviously has an order, whereas the "first 
available authenticator" is not well defined.
