The [Payment Method Identifiers](http://wicg.github.io/paymentrequest/specs/method-identifiers.html) spec states:
> The PaymentRequest API requires that merchants supply a list identifiers for supported payment methods. This document defines those identifier strings and how they are created.

The two sets of spec proposals agree that:

* There should be a list of identifiers for payment methods.
* There should be shared attributes across payment apps and methods.
* There should be short names for payment methods.
* We should support distributed extensibility.

This sounds an awful lot like a Linked Data vocabulary. Is it?

This is related to #25 Payment Method Identifier Registry.
