[Bitcoin-development] WebCryto standard to support secp256r1 but not secp256k1

Looking at the proposed native crypto browser support (should arrive in the
next year)


We see:

enum NamedCurve {
  // NIST recommended curve P-256, also known as secp256r1.
  // NIST recommended curve P-384, also known as secp384r1.
  // NIST recommended curve P-521, also known as secp521r1.

I wonder if we might be able to get bitcoin's curve in there
