I still don't understand how both user and dev can handle generic use case of authentication without increasing complexity using this new protocol. This protocol seems to only help key manufacturers.

Do you really think i can ask my customer to buy a key in order to use my app ?
Do you think a user can use it's smartphone to sign in without any other way to sign in if he lost the smartphone ? (cause majority will not buy a key)
Do you think a user who buy two key will register each key on each app ?

I don't think this protocol will be use in its current state. It really looks terrible...
