residentKey doesn't provide uv=preferred though, that's unrelated. This is however as you say, about the password-less (the token provides the MFA capabilities) and the traditional token + pw scenario. And today the spec can't handle that, but if there is a credProps extension that *is* able to do per-authenticator user verification policies that would certainly work. Is this something that credProps can provide, or is this an opportunity to suggest that credProps should have a UV flag associated? 

At the moment I think I will have to have some UI/UX work around for this, but yes, I'd really like the situation of password-less + MFA considered. :)
