equalsJeffH has just merged emlun's pull request 1031 for https://github.com/w3c/webauthn:

== Define "bound" for credentials and use the term "scoped" where appropriate ==
This fixes some of #462:

```
CREDENTIAL:

(a credential)   bound to a authenticator
(a credential is)   bound to   an/this authenticator
                    managed by    "         "
                    present on    "         "
                    stored on     "         "
                    owning             authenticator
```

This PR leaves a few occurrences of "managed by authenticator" and "stored on authenticator" in introductory sections. The constructions "present on authenticator" and "owning authenticator" do not seem to appear anywhere in the spec at this time.

These terms in #462 seem to have already been fixed:

>scope, as in:
>- Public key credential's scope
>- strong, attested, scoped, public key-based credentials

This might also let us check off a few items in #358.
