The Signature Formats section https://w3c.github.io/webauthn/#sctn-signature-attestation-types already lists specific encodings for ES256, RS256, and PS256.  We should add specific guidance for other supported formats, including EdDSA, ES256K, etc.  What algorithms am I missing?  We should leave the non-normative guidance for algorithms still TBD, but I don't think we should create normative requirements for signature formats that don't exist yet.

I believe that @ve7jtb has a related PR to add some of this already.  Can someone add a link to that in this issue?
