The W3C is just about to launch two crypto-related WGs:
http://www.w3.org/2015/hasec/2015-hasec-charter.html
http://www.w3.org/2015/06/payments-wg-charter.html

It seems that WebCrypto didn't satisfy a particularly large market (in terms of applications) and therefore the next steps could be worth discussing a bit, right?

I'm still waiting for some kind of write-up/specification on how the payment industry intends making the 1Bn+ chip-cards in circulation usable on the Web, or at least how virtualized versions of such cards would fill that bill.

Apparently you don't think that's a good idea.

Personally, I wouldn't start anything in this space until this has been done.   Elimination of "technical risk" applies to all projects, regardless if they are standards or not.
