== Allow RP to determine correct Platform Authenticator name ==
When implementing WebAuthn/FIDO2 for larger end-user focused deployments, we're always struggling with the correct naming of the actions that are presented to the users.

Allowing the RP to display the specific platform authenticator name would help UX a lot, e.g., "Use Touch ID" or "Set up Windows Hello". For this to work properly, there needs to be a reliable way for the RP to determine the correct name on the platform. It could be very simple, something like "userVerifyingPlatformAuthenticatorName" always returning a string like "Touch ID", "Face ID", "Windows Hello", defined by the platform.

Revisiting #1304 , we would strongly encourage further developments here.
