The following commits were just pushed by vijaybh to 
https://github.com/w3c/webauthn:

* Make attestation more modular (#161)

* Replace facet with origin

Facet was a holdover from the old FIDO specs and origin is the term 
used
everywhere in this spec (as well as in recent FIDO specs)

* Clean up explanation of computing clientDataHash and passing to 
authenticator

Fixes #153

* Remove text from authnsel extension to avoid chicken-and-egg problem

Fixes #152

* Clean up attestation

- Standardize the authenticator data so all formats have equal support
for AAGUID, extensions, etc. This also removes a lot of duplication
across structures.
- Add structure to the definition of attestation formats. Fixes #126.
Fixes #127.
- Simplify the naming of the attestation types to make it easier to
understand
- Clean up mentions of GUID. Fixes #148, fixes #149, fixes #150.
- Clarifies how to use self attestation. Fixes #115.
- More detailed pointers on how to generate a TPM attestation.
- Simplify Android attestation to remove fields that were not really
attested by authenticator and were therefore creating a false sense of
assurance.

* Fix typo (thanks Travis!)

* Incorporated feedback from @rlin1

Also cleaned up wording and naming for consistency.

Added Android N attestation format. Fixes #103.

Changed name for SafetyNet attestation format. Fixes #128.

* Clarify that attestation is not optional

Fixes #86

Also clarify that at least self attestation must be used. Fixes #115
