Well, not exactly. Some feel that they have use cases for being able to use a UAF authenticator "underneath" the webauthn API. There are pull requests queued which add the necessary language to the webauthn spec:

Add credential type uaf: https://github.com/w3c/webauthn/pull/407
Add uaf attestation format: https://github.com/w3c/webauthn/pull/408

The above PRs are attached to the ["webauthn Level 2" milestone (L2-WD-00)](https://github.com/w3c/webauthn/milestone/7)

In any case, if there are folks, such as perhaps @pkuntal, who feel they have actual deployment use cases for such functionality, they really ought to weigh-in on this discussion in order to help justify accepting the above PRs.
