The browser could visit a URL that directly communicates the intention, and receive a streamlined challenge rather than having to load a bulkier login page.

Interesting idea! What would prompt the browser to visit that URL though? For /.well-known/change-password, the user presumably interacts with their password manager in order to initiate that navigation. But what would the corresponding trigger be for the username-less WebAuthn login?
