The use case of a less-sophisticated RP requesting authenticators which are backed up due them lacking sophisticated/cost-effective account recovery flows is interesting, as that is one where attestations and extensions adding more sophistication really wouldn't help.

I don't know if this would be more of a client request (which could be accomplished via authenticator metadata) or something where there's value in having the authenticator self-attest the current backup state of a credential.
