My apologies for being absent here: I was on vacation until yesterday.

> @nadalin We are waiting for @balfanz / @christiaanbrand to respond/address our concerns about scary UI and alternate name suggestions.

Addressing the names question. The current enum values in the PR are "none", "verifiable", and "direct". You [suggest](https://github.com/w3c/webauthn/pull/636#issuecomment-344012525) "none", "indirect" / "proxy", and "direct". I think we can easily change the middle value to "indirect".

R.e. UI, I agree [with J.C.](https://github.com/w3c/webauthn/pull/636#discussion_r151280967) that mandating consent is premature here. We determine security UI based on studies and metrics and I wouldn't want to prejudge that.

I will see whether Dirk agrees and, if so, work with him to update the PR.
