While I'm still wondering if a simple HTML element (no JavaScript) would help websites even more... if you're worried about backwards compatibility, you could add a `navigator.credentials.getPublicKey(result)` method to return the key in a well supported format (e.g. PEM); where websites could use a polyfill script for a few years.
