Is there a big enough difference between `NotRequired` and `AuthenticatorBehavior` to be worth making this an enumeration instead of a Boolean flag?

- `required: true` would be equivalent to `Required`
- `required: false` would let the platform/authenticator do whatever it wants, but with the knowledge that UV is not required. It would probably choose to not ask for UV, or perhaps ask for UV but allow skipping it, or in some cases ignore the flag and ask anyway.
- Unspecified would be much the same as `required: false`, except the platform is probably more likely to ask for UV than not.
