Yeah. This does apply to non-CTAP authenticators, but this was done mostly for internal consistency reasons since it seemed contradictory that "authenticators MUST also provide some form of attestation" while the spec also supports the None attestation format. It's probably not terribly useful to sync this into CTAP, since most of the point of hardware authenticators is that they're capable of protecting secrets such as an attestation key.
