Thanks for the responses.  Another option is to make the description of txAuthSimple more like txAuthGeneric (https://w3c.github.io/webauthn/#sctn-generic-txauth-extension), where the client extension input is provided as a CBOR Map, with the corresponding key/value pairs.  Note also that client extension input does not have to strictly be in JSON ("The client extension input, which is a value that can be encoded in JSON ..." as per https://w3c.github.io/webauthn/#sctn-extension-request-parameters).  

So defining client extension input as txAuthSimpleArg = {prompt: tstr,} would allow for the client extension input to simply be passed as authenticator extension input.
