Kieun has just created a new issue for https://github.com/w3c/webauthn:

== Refine User Verification description  ==
The description of [User Verification ](https://w3c.github.io/webauthn/#user-verification)includes following sentence.

> The intent is to be able to distinguish individual users.
In fact, If we enroll multiple fingerprints of family members to the authenticator (device), the authenticator never identify the each users. But, this sentence may mislead to readers that the authenticator can distinguish or identify the users.

It is more like the process that checks the user's authority to access the credential private key.
