Today, the CM API calls the thing that's handed to an origin to authenticate a user a `Credential`. It sounds like you'd like to change that to `Credential Assertion` or `Assertion`? And call the underlying secret thing that enables generation of the assertion `Credential`? I think I'm ok with that distinction, but we'll have to figure out what the web-facing implementation would look like (we're using `Credential` today for the thing I think you want to call `Assertion`, for instance).
