Yes this is a known issue.

We would need to make a corresponding change to CTAP.  Without that, it can't be passed to the authenticator.  
There are other possible EdDSA curves as well as Ed448 that some people might want.

Remember that the alg are passed to the authenticator as a list ordered by the RP's preference,  so we need to think about how the kty paramater would be applied by the authenticator.   Is this just for edDSA or should it be more general?
