This was my thought as well. It feels like the cases where a RP would require a attestation might be the exception and not the rule. So, a default of no attestation would imply that the RP assumes nothing about the authenticator (which is probably fine for the vast majority of RPs). And, if they do want to have restrictions, the RP looks for an attestation from an authenticator capable of that.
