Implementation report for WebAuthn 2 needs an update

Dear WebAuthn WG,

In order to move the Web AUthn 2 specification to Recommendation, the
Director is requesting an update to the implementation report.

The implementation report provided during the transition request [1] to
move WebAuthn 2 to Proposed Recommendation relies on data that haven't
been updated for the 2 years old:
 https://www.w3.org/2020/12/webauthn-report.html
 https://github.com/w3c/test-results/tree/gh-pages/webauthn

Live WPT results are available at:
 https://wpt.fyi/results/webauthn?label=experimental&label=master&aligned

The tests used there show some updates made to the WebAuthN test suite
in the past 2 years:
  https://github.com/web-platform-tests/wpt/tree/master/webauthn

But it's not clear if those udpates cover all of the new features
provided by WebAuthn 2:
[[
New method to allow Discoverable/Resident Credentials Preferred
New methods added for Attestation Objects
New Enterprise Attestation, Apple Attestation
New Large Blob storage and credential properties
]]

Is there an assessment of whether the test suite covers those features,
or an explanation of why it cannot?

For example, I wasn't able to find tests for new methods like:

getTransports, getAuthenticatorData, etc.
  https://www.w3.org/TR/webauthn-2/#authenticatorattestationresponse

Let me know if I can help in any way to provide the updated information.

Thank you,

Philippe
