Re: [webauthn] `CredentialRequestOptions` make otherwise valid values invalid in an undesirable way

In Chromium, we have set the members of `CredentialCreationOptions` as nullable ([source](https://cs.chromium.org/chromium/src/third_party/blink/renderer/modules/credentialmanager/credential_creation_options.idl)). Thus if a given member isn't present, it's null, and then everything works out.

That contrasts with [what's in Webauthn](https://w3c.github.io/webauthn/#credentialcreationoptions-extension). Perhaps Webauthn should allow these fields to be nullable so that the required members within each subtype's options aren't a problem?
