Terminology.

At this time positively identify user and device doesn't need to be 
positively identifyable are both used.
a)  The device must be able to positively identify the user
b) The device doesn’t need to be positively identifiable

I think we should always use a) as the authenticator positively 
identifies the user (or positively identifying authenticator). It is 
not that the device is not positively identifiable in some cases (so b
 is misleading IMHO).
