> 1.)	Payment Request API
> 	http://www.w3.org/TR/payment-request/
> 	This specification describes a web API to allow merchants (i.e.,

> 	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.

> The Accessible Platform Architectures (APA) Working Group has found no

> 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
