Hi Anders, 

I successfully downloaded the PDF with the payment authorization scheme and 
can confirm that prior art exists since 2016 11:33:42 CET, in case someone 
tries to patent that scheme. Those protocols are IMHO only patentable in the 
US. Both messages are registered now in the W3C archived mailing lists, thus 
creating evidence.
