Gotcha. So, read another way, doesthe existing `AttestationConveyancePreference` roughly accomplish what is being discussed in this thread? If a RP wants to allow syncing, they give a attestation preference of `none` and if they don't, they specify `direct`. It isn't exactly the same thing. But, maybe for all intents and purposes it is unless https://github.com/w3c/webauthn/issues/931 outlines some means of backing up a attestation capable authenticator to another attestation capable authenticator.
