agl has just merged agl's pull request 1470 for https://github.com/w3c/webauthn:

== Make largeBlobs explicit during create. ==
Once largeBlobKey (at CTAP2) became something that the authenticator
could derive I had hoped that we could simplify the WebAuthn level
extension and not have a creation extension. Instead, user agents could
just always create a largeBlobKey in contexts where the extension could
be used.

However 100% (i.e. both) people who have looked at this now though that
was non-obvious and so it's probably Too Cute and should be More
Explicit. Also, it's been suggested that it would be a waste of a
resident credential if the RP needed to store a blob and only found out
after at assertion time that it wouldn't work.
