This is not intended to be an "overview" document. It is a technical document that defines the primary roles in the architecture (mediator and app) and the key concept of a payment method.

This is intended to be a REC track document (not a note). There should be separate documents that specify how to implement these roles in specific deployment scenarios and this should be a normative dependency of those.

The If you feel we still need an "overview" document then that should be a separate WG note titled something like "Overview" and include content such as:

I disagree. We need to record somewhere the specifics of how a conformant payment app and a conformant payment mediator must behave. We can repeat this for every implementation specific spec or have this in a single place and refer to it from those implementation specific specs.
