No. In `discouraged` case, even if authenticator supports user verification, RP probably will not get it and RP has no way to know/take advantage of that feature. Similarly, Authenticator who has done extra work to make user verification possible in their product, will unfairly suffer because by default that feature is not used. `preferred` maps to default behavior of authenticator and RP has a better chance of supporting all kind of authenticators.
