emlun has just created a new issue for https://github.com/w3c/webauthn:

== Is AuthenticationExtensionsAuthenticatorInputs unused? ==
[ยง5.7.3](https://w3c.github.io/webauthn/#iface-authentication-extensions-authenticator-inputs) lists the definition:

typedef record<DOMString, DOMString> AuthenticationExtensionsAuthenticatorInputs;

...which seems to not be referenced anywhere else in the spec, extensions certainly use output types other than `DOMString`. Is this type unused?

While working on #1425 I started thinking about adding a simlar CDDL extension point. Should we perhaps transmute it into CDDL (as WebIDL doesn't seem entirely appropriate for the authenticator layer) and update it to match the extensions?
