Interesting I was under the impression that you needed some sort of UV on the phone to use the hardware backed keys.  
I guess I have never set up a Android phone without a pin or biometric.

The spec would allow you to make a rk credential in that case on the platform, the problem becomes a UI one because you cant disclose the name/ displayname without UV so would have a hard time with a pick list unless the user sets up a PIN. Unless you special case the display list from inside the authenticator vs the platform.
