This is a topic specific to the IETF and IANA. While we as an industry should prefer more modern (and sufficiently vetted) algorithms, we need to remain cognizant that many users and vendors will continue to use RSA signing, and I don't think we need to include any recommendations within the WebAuthn spec as to which types of algorithms a developer should support.
