> I think your answers ought to be addressed in https://github.com/fido-alliance/how-to-fido/blob/master/HowToFIDO.md --- a subtle-but-important aspect of making this work smoothly is for the platform authenticator to support discoverable credentials, such the RP does `navigator.credential.get()` using an empty allow list and the platform authnr can find the cred and utilize it, regardless of the browser that's being used at the time.

Indeed, I'd love to be able to rely on resident key/client-side discoverable credentials. But since Android Chrome doesn't support them (yet), is there something better if we want to support all the major platform authenticators in the short term?
