== finish removing "create credential" permissions policy cruft ==
Upon taking a close look at the spec with regards to references to "permissions policy", I've noticed that there remains some cruft with respect to there being a permissions policy with respect to credential creation (i.e., `publickey-credential-create`), which we ostensibly removed via PR #1394.


1. Section [5.1.3. Create a New Credential - PublicKeyCredential’s [[Create]]() Method](https://www.w3.org/TR/webauthn-3/#sctn-createCredential) continues to have a Note regarding permissions policy (it should not):
    > Note: Invocation of this internal method indicates that it was allowed by permissions policy, which is evaluated at the [CREDENTIAL-MANAGEMENT-1] level. See § 5.9 Permissions Policy integration.

2. The Note in section [5.9. Permissions Policy integration](https://www.w3.org/TR/webauthn-3/#sctn-permissions-policy) continues to mention `[[DiscoverFromExternalSource]](origin, options, sameOriginWithAncestors)` --- it should not.
