The opposite also seems true.

Google Chrome for Android  will happily created a server-side credential without erroring out, even when setting `requireResidentKey` to `required`.  I would expect it to error out as described in the spec, but it silent generates a server-side credential.

The spec says I can differentiate between these cases using the `credProps` extension in the cases of `discouraged` and `preferred`.

But what do I do with misbehaving platforms that don't error out as the spec mandates?
