If RPs require user verification, they specify `userVerification` as `required`. 
RPs can always check for `uv` bit in the response to verify that user verification is performed.

The best we can do at this time is via the credProps extension. Regarding the implementation on one browser vs another, that is not a spec issue. Browser/OS vendors are teams with their own schedules and it always takes some time to get everything implemented. We will get there.

API itself contains the attachment property. And the response has `transports` value.
