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

== Description of CollectedClientData is outdated ==
The description of [CollectedClientData][ccd] seems outdated:

>The **client data** represents the contextual bindings of both the Relying Party and the client platform. It is a key-value mapping with string-valued keys. Values can be any type that has a valid encoding in JSON. Its structure is defined by the following Web IDL.


- This seems to contradict itself, saying both that values are strings and that they are any JSON-able type.
- Not all values are strings now that `tokenBinding` is a dictionary.
