If "Bob Pay" includes self-describing, machine-readable information (which may also have links to further information), then when "Bob Pay" is added to the smart wallet, the wallet can figure out how to handle "Bob Pay". I think with that approach, there isn't any need for the wallet to asynchronously/periodically head off to check a registry.
