I don't think any change is necessary. The combination of step 12:

>Perform CBOR decoding on the _attestationObject_ field [...] to obtain [...] the authenticator data _authData_

and step 16:

>the "alg" parameter in the credential public key in _authData_

seems pretty unambiguous to me. We also don't have detailed steps for in which order the RP should parse all the parts of the attestation object, and I don't think we should. Although I will agree that the name "_attested_ credential data" for the sub-datastructure is a bit unfortunate, since it doesn't really have much to do with attestation.
