Admittedly, the process described in this PR are a little hand-wavy. Edge, for example, uses a fairly complicated heuristic model to avoid race condition and ensure operations are happening smoothly. For example, when multiple transports are hitting the same authenticators, there's a queuing mechanism in combination with timing heuristics to not have crazy errors. Because of the complication, I decided to not specify it further and limit the description to "loop through each authenticator and cancel things."
