Protect AWS root account with multiple YubiKeys

2

I'd like to secure my AWS root account with additional spake YubiKey. At the moment I see only an option to set up just one YubiKey. In case YubiKey gets destroyed there is no option to add additional spare key. Most of the services online provides such functionality, but looks like AWS doesn't. This is quite important factor regarding security of the root account.
