@jpstotz I believe the page you linked concerns support from authenticator vendors, but that is only half the picture. All WebAuthn extensions are explicitly declared to be optional for both authenticators and clients to support, so it's not enough that just the authenticator supports one. WG representatives for the major browsers have stated that they have no plans to implement support for these removed extensions, so they were removed in L2 to better reflect what's likely to be supported in practice.
