Semantics for Recovery Code

when you register Security key for login to service, you’ll get recovery code for losing key. to store recovery codes safely is not easy, so I save them into password manager (1Password).

so if there are some semantics to mark recovery code up, manager can recognize them for saving, using, revoking automatically.

like below (It’s only a concept, valid semantics need discussion)

<!-- manager save each code automatically -->
<ul>
  <li type=recoveryCode>asdf rewq</li>
  <li type=recoveryCode>lkjh poiu<li>
</ul>

<!-- manager use one of recover code list, fill automatically, revoke used code -->
<input type=recoveryCode>

in this case, user can recovery service account when losing hardware key if password managers are accessible.
