updated in the OP:

first-factor
- as in "first-factor authenticator" aka one that is actually multi-factor because it is user verification-capable (1st factor, something you are), and wields the private key (2nd factor, a secret you possess).
- also may want to clarify/define/use terms such as "multi-factor authn", "first multi-factor", etc.
