Re: [webauthn] Clarify description of compliant authenticators in Introduction

The current master already has the following paragraph:
"Broadly, compliant authenticators protect public key credentials, and interact with user agents to implement the Web Authentication API. Some authenticators MAY run on the same client device (e.g., smart phone, tablet, desktop PC) as the user agent is running on. For instance, such an authenticator might consist of a Trusted Execution Environment (TEE) applet, a Trusted Platform Module (TPM), or a Secure Element (SE) integrated into the client device in conjunction with some means for user verification, along with appropriate driver software to mediate access to these components' functionality. Other authenticators MAY operate autonomously from the client device running the user agent, and be accessed over a transport such as Universal Serial Bus (USB), Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) or Near Field Communications (NFC)"

This paragraph doesn't explicitly call-out the case (a) as mentioned in the first comment.
