I think you mis-understand the issue, and the fact that there are literally CVE's that exist because of this defect. It has affected Azure AD, Okta, nextcloud and more. UV preferred is misleading because RP's do not validate it when requested, and RP's *believe* that it is required.

There is a blindingly obvious gap in this specification for "what happens when I ask for UV preferred" during registration and authentication.
