We should avoid using the term "sync" in the WebAuthn spec. Sync is one specific mechanism of moving/copying/migrating credentials. Other terms include:

- "copy"
- "move"
- "backup"
- "export"
- "peer-to-peer transfer"

We're really talking about "multi-device WebAuthn credentials" and "single-device WebAuthn credentials". I would propose using these two phrases instead.
