Let me give you our example.

We have a distributed server environment and is doing credentialID based lookup. We use user id as a helper for lookup in this distributed environment for scalability purposes. The response server is not the same as request server. And that is why, userId is a helpful to us even in a second factor case. 

As this is not optional in CTAP spec, I see no reason for WebAuthN to hide this information. 

I am closing this. Please reopen if someone does not agree.
