This is currently possible to do by replacing an existing credential, by performing a new registration ceremony with the same `user.id` but omitting the credential to be replaced from `excludeCredentials`. But I agree it could be done more smoothly if it didn't require an additional ceremony invocation just to replace the credential metadata. I guess one of the best options for how to do this would probably be an authentication extension?

On the other hand, though: would this risk users getting confused when credential names suddenly change with little or no warning? How big a deal would that be?
