Re: [paymentrequest] Should well-known identifiers be used for ubiquitous payment methods (#35)


If we go with a registry of short strings, then I would make the specification the registry of approved strings. An editors draft could be the registry of "strings under consideration but not yet approved" and those could become "approved" in subsequent spec revisions.

I am suggesting we consider such an approach as a way of having an institutional commitment (via the WG) to maintaining the registry. While there are advantages to having a registry exist outside the spec (e.g., it could be updated beyond the life of a WG) at least for the time being I would propose we give the WG the responsibility of maintaining any registry.

Personally,  I think our approach should allow for both short strings and URIs, though I do not yet have a deep understanding of the cost of the added complexity.
