I think this is mainly relevant in the case of roaming authenticators as bound authenticator would always be responsive (to a create call).

But even without actively advertising the support for access to a roaming Authenticator on the platform to the RP JS Code, the Browser could remember that it has seen a roaming Authenticator before and could ask the user whether to use/insert it or to say no authenticator available (when encountering a create call for a WebAuthn credential).

So this could potentially be addressed by implementation guidance (even without an API change).
