I'm writing up a blog post that will hopefully put everything in
perspective. To be clear, there is still a lot that we can do and have
an impact on, both in Web Payments and in Credentials / Verifiable
Claims. One of those things is probably not the browser API (without an
enormous amount of effort).

That said, there are lessons to be learned here wrt. the credentials API.

Yes, and that went a great deal toward getting the Web Payments IG to
vote in favor of moving the Verifiable Claims work to the next stage.

Will hopefully have the blog post up by next week, before the W3C
Advisory Committee Meeting at MIT.
