The transports result might need to be defined as what the client + operating system can support, and not what currently is supported by available hardware and settings. Examples what this may be appropriate:

- CoreBluetooth on the Mac is available, but the user may have the radio turned off
- NFC support is not built into the mac, but could hypothetically be provided by an external reader. Like above, this could mean NFC support comes and goes during authentication

I suppose the user might toggle the UVPA as well.
