A relying party UX can inform the user of what is acceptable, and can refuse things which are not acceptable with a user-displayed error - but the API itself does not provide filtering capabilities for makes and models.

The expectation is that for relying parties which do not have specific security needs (such as a bank, employer, or government agency) that _any_ authenticator the user brings which meets technical requirements is acceptable.
