This modification indeed affects UAF. But I'm not sure that how many number of UAF silent authenticators are deployed in the market. I would also think that at least user presence is needed during authentication in web space for privacy reason.
But for native application, it would be worth to provide silent authenticators for authentication since a lot of applications already tend to use automated login(authenticate) approach.
