>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.

What would be the benefit of this?

>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).

What do you mean? Doesn't the quoted passage say that the client extension input _does_ have to be a JSON (-encodable) value?
