equalsJeffH has just merged agl's pull request 827 for https://github.com/w3c/webauthn:

== Emphasise that the CollectedClientData can be extended. ==
There is a risk that RPs will implement overly simplistic parsing of the `CollectedClientData` and end up intolerant of any future additions. This change emphasises the need to parse it properly and will be coupled with a behaviour in Chrome that inserts a key (`new_keys_may_be_added_here`) in a random 20% of cases.
