Re: [webauthn] Contradiction in whether user handle is required

U2F authenticator does not store any user identifier (user handle) for credentials. Even though we send a user handle in PublicKeyCredentialUserEntity during registration, the U2F authenticator ignores it when generating a public key credential. So, I think we don't have to drop "optional" for user handle.
