balfanz has just created a new issue for https://github.com/w3c/webauthn:

== keyType: "public-key" is superfluous ==
I seem to remember that we had discussions about this in the working group and flagged it as something we should come back to later, but we never have.

The `type` attribute in [`PublicKeyCredentialDescriptor`](https://github.com/w3c/webauthn/blob/14c2733ca6a4a9568e4c48fef1b870448818e811/index.bs#L1406) and in [`PublicKeyCredentialParameters`](https://github.com/w3c/webauthn/blob/14c2733ca6a4a9568e4c48fef1b870448818e811/index.bs#L1080) has no meaning and serves no purpose. We should remove it.
