Thank you for putting this together. I believe the biometrics example is useful. 
You have my support for moving forward.

    Colleagues:
    
    This is a Call for Consensus (CfC) to the Accessible Platform
    Architectures (APA) Working Group on our review of three Web Payments
    API specifications.
    
    *	Background Information
    
    APA's review of the following three API specifications relating to
    payment transactions via the web was requested by the Web Payments
    Working Group at:
    
    http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-apa/2016Apr/0050.html

    
    1.)	Payment Request API
    	http://www.w3.org/TR/payment-request/

    	This specification describes a web API to allow merchants (i.e.,
    	web sites selling physical or digital goods) to easily accept
    	payments from different payment methods with minimal
    	integration.  User agents (e.g. browsers) will facilitate the
    	payment flow between merchant and user.
    2.)	Payment Method Identifiers
    	http://www.w3.org/TR/payment-method-id/

    	This document defines payment method identifier strings so that
    	components in the payment ecosystem can determine which parties
    	support which payment methods.
    3.)	Basic Card Payment
    	http://www.w3.org/TR/payment-method-basic-card/ This specification
    	describes the data formats used by the Payment Request API to
    	support payment by payment cards such as credit or debit cards.
    
    Review of these three specifications was referred to APA's Web Payments
    Subteam, whose deliberations on these specifications are available in
    recent teleconference minutes and publically archived email threads:
    
    1.) Subteam Minutes
    https://www.w3.org/2016/08/04-apa-minutes.html

    https://www.w3.org/2016/08/18-apa-minutes.html

    
    2.) Email Threads
    http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-apa/2016Aug/0015.html

    http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-apa/2016Aug/0067.html

    
    *	Proposed Comment
    
    The Accessible Platform Architectures (APA) Working Group has found no
    specific problem in these three API specifications themselves. However,
    we do request addition of the following section to each specification:
    
    Accessibility Impact Statement
    
    This specification has no defined user interface. In addition, there are
    no specific accessibility requirements on implementations. However, to
    the extent that an implementation provides user interactions in support
    of this specification, the implementation must ensure that the interface
    for those interactions is exposed to the platform accessibility API.
    Moreover, implementors should take into consideration the needs of their
    users with varying abilities when designing solutions that implement
    this specification. As an example, the use of biometric authentication
    techniques should provide for enough variation to allow for people with
    widely differing physical abilities. See the W3C Accessibility
    Guidelines documents for more information.
    
    *	ACTION TO TAKE
    
    This CfC is now open for objection, comment, as well as statements of
    support via email. Silence will be interpreted as support, though
    messages of support are certainly welcome.
    
    If you object to this proposed action, or have comments concerning this
    proposal, please respond by replying on list to this message no later
    than 23:59 (Midnight) Boston Time, Tuesday 26 August.
