Yes. I think we don't have any feasible way to consume the RFU bits.

In current WebAuthn spec, we don't have any version information. So, from the RP perspective, new flags in Authenticator Data cannot be distinguishable from the old one. For doing this, we should have some distinguishable information like version. E.g., authenticator can return the version information within the authenticator extension that it supports.
