There's a few issues with managing credentials.  The first is, there is 
no way to remove a credential.  This is essential to TOTP as you may end 
up with a lost or obsolete device.


THe 2nd is that for TOTP, you will want to check every device on a 
credential validation rather than just one:


Our own VPN allows me to set up multiple tokens.  I have one on my 
iphone and ipad just in case I lose one or the other.  OUr VPN allows me 
to use either to login in.
