And before someone says "this same problem exists with the use of FIDO authenticators for authenticating users at websites today", keep in mind the problem being solved. WebAuthn and human-consumable PKI that it facilitates is really designed to address the problems of phishing and subsequent credential stuffing attacks, which I think it does reasonably well.
