Gentlemen,

AFAICT, there's a considerable overlap between WebCrypto.Next
http://www.w3.org/2012/webcrypto/wiki/WG_Future_Work
and U2F. At least for the stuff that relates to user keys and tokens.

It seems like an awful waste of precious cycles developing additional specifications
if two of the most prominent parties have already decided to do something else.

Would it be possible getting some kind of position on this?

Thanx,
Anders
