part of fixing this is where we say..

> The attestationObject attribute contains an attestation object. The
   contents of this object are determined by the attestation statement
   format used by the authenticator.

..to rather say something like..
>  [ acknowledging that the authnData portion of attstnObj is constant, and it is only the attStmt portion of attstnObj that differs based on attStmt format type ]

..because the former is incorrect in that it is saying the attstnObj's format is determined by the attestation statement format, where it is actually only a component of the attstnObj that varies per attestation stmt format.
