Re: [webauthn] Standardising support for software authenticators (#1175)

From the call of 2021-01-06:

We are considering what issues might be addressed in WebAuthn Level Three and feel that this is premature. While it might be the case that wide-spread use of software authenticators motivate some WebAuthn-level changes, WebAuthn itself doesn't define how authenticators are discovered. That's a platform concern. Since WebAuthn is a Web API, it's not the place to define other authenticator transports.

(For example, the transport for physical authenticators is defined by FIDO, a separate body from the W3C.)

As such, the group doesn't feel that it wants to take on non-Web work in L3.
