@herrjemand To break up:

1. Get challenge. Server provides the challenge in HTML.
2, Send it to the authenticator. Browser does that based on HTML document.
3. Get response. Again, browser does that.
4. Send challenge back to RP. Again, browser can do that, I guess by using form submission or something like that.

Noting that browser already kind of does 2 and 3 by itself(it is abstracted under JS API) there isn't any real stoppers for this.
