apowers313 has just created a new issue for https://github.com/w3c/webauthn:

== Icon format / conversion ==
[CTAP](https://fidoalliance.org/specs/fido-v2.0-id-20180227/fido-client-to-authenticator-protocol-v2.0-id-20180227.html#authenticatorMakeCredential) allows that authenticators can use a data URL for the icon

> Note that icon values used with authenticators can employ [[!RFC 2397]] "data" URLs so that the image data is passed by value, rather than by reference. This can enable authenticators with a display but no Internet connection to display icons.

There's no mention of that anywhere in the WebAuthn spec, nor does it mention if the browser is expected to resolve a URL to a data URL on behalf of the authenticator. We should probably add some processing rules for icons.
