I'm going to need to get more expert eyes than my own on this.

My initial question is: Do we need to define what these operations _do_? For example, if one calls `Add Virtual Authenticator`, I presume the user agent would have an authenticator now that could respond to a makeCredential. But will it? Does it need to be selective in some way about its virtual attachment?

What happens if I do `Add Virtual Authenticator` twice? 

I'm guessing that someone would implement this as a soft-HID device, maybe, that listened for these commands? Or does the user agent need to do that?
