Fine by me, especially given where we are in the process for completing L2.  Like I said above, we _could_ clarify it "...if we want/need to be pedantically clear...", implying I don't feel its fully necessary.

FWIW, I disagree.  That "sub-datastructure" (i.e., [attested credential data](https://w3c.github.io/webauthn/#attested-credential-data)) is data signed by the [attestation private key](https://w3c.github.io/webauthn/#attestation-private-key), and hence is "_attested_" by said private key.  See also [figure 6](https://w3c.github.io/webauthn/#fig-attStructs) "attestation object". We also use the phrase "attested [credential public key](https://w3c.github.io/webauthn/#credential-public-key)" in a couple places.
