equalsJeffH has just submitted a new pull request for https://github.com/w3c/webauthn:

== use '(client-side) discoverable credential' terminology ==
..rather than the 'resident credential' and 'resident key' terms.  Also changed 'non-resident credential' to 'server-side credential', along with other related fixups. Marked the latter terms as DEPRECATED.

fixes #1379 (may only "improve" it due to not addressing the notion of "forbidden to create a client-side cred", though the latter perhaps ought to be in its own issue separate from #1379)

See https://github.com/w3c/webauthn/pull/1398
