My comments is going to be strictly focused on platform authenticators(esp. fingerprint scanners) not the unknowns(meaning the rest).
That's what my current project will heavily depend on.
I think there are many ways to solve the registration and authentication problems via the net or web.  And one of the approach being used currently is one of the uncalled solutions on my part. I think to solve this problem one needs to at least group access to platform authenticators(esp.fingerprint scanners) into three parts. 
1. System Access.
2. Local Access(i.e local Apps without internet integration) and
3. Web Access(Apps with internet access(mostly heavily dependant on the Internet)).
I think and known that if things a viewed this way, then it will surely be less complicated to solve than the current state of confusions in the current WebAuth.
