Re: CfC to publish documents as FPWD of the Web Payments WG

+1 from Shopify

No formal objections, and I'll call out that we're new to this WG so don't have all the context yet, but I am in agreement with the comments Manu made about the Architecture doc, it's skewed towards the User Agent and Mediator as browsers even in some of the terminology used. I think it would be worth spending some time before moving too much further on some of these specs to hash out a high level view of the HTTP API equivalents for payment request, registration, and payment app interaction in order to see where (or if) they overlap with the current browser specific versions.

Therefore, please limit any Formal Objections to issues related to the scope of these documents rather than technical content where the Working Group has not yet made a decision.

Depending on the number and nature of the Formal Objections, the Chairs will either make a decision either to pursue FPWD and report the Formal Objections to the Director (as required by W3C Process), or to postpone publication until there is greater consensus to publish.
