@Kieun This is fine but it will undoubtedly lead to a fractured FIDO ecosystem.  Fixing it seems close to impossible.  TPMs needed almost 20 years to get any (visible) use for consumers.  

Although politically and technically difficult, I would early on have considered some kind of portable "master secret". However, the window of opportunity have already passed.
