I do not believe we will have hundreds. This diagram:


 * 2 api specs (paymentRequest, HTTP)
 * 2 specs for mediator/apps. As we discussed, I still think 2 might be better since different audiences (e.g., browser developers v. payment app developers) but I don't mind experimentation to try to come up with one.
 * N payment method specs.
 * 1 payment method identifier spec
 * 1 architecture document

How about this: let's keep it in its own document for now and then determine where the content should go after we understand better (1) how much content that turns out to be and (2) whether the evolution of the mediator/app spec really suggests that identifiers should be included...or not.
