Re: [webauthn] PublicKeyCredentialParameters can't select curve (E.g. ed448) (#1446)

This is also an issue for ECDSA I suppose.

There is no _technical_ reason why you wouldn't match ES256 with P-384  or
ES384 with P-521. In that sense being able to select the curve also makes
sense in the ECDSA context
