@arshadnoor is right the majority of final customer will not move first to a dedicated key. The first step (for a final user) would be to use the device they own: their smartphone / watch.

And they will not buy a key for a long so if you want this protocol to be really used by business, the dev and users need a simple way to recover from a single device lost (securely).

If the only solution is (for a device lost/borken/stolen) is to use the email then this protocol offer nothing more except more works for dev teams and has no chance to be use in the real world.
