Sorry, do you mean the merchants? Or the PSP that a merchant uses who might be controlling their checkout flow? Either way, if they don't want address collection, it's an optional parameter. I think it's on us to prove over time that it's beneficial to ask the user agent to facilitate this.

Branding is still possible, even with a flow that is outside the merchants control. Though I suspect this is largely a UI issue and will be up to the user-agent implementing the API and how they decide to handle this.

I can't think of anything that would preclude this from taking place.
