I'd look to Google to hear their opinion about whether enabling at least 
a subset of Webextensions on their mobile browsers would be easier than 
defining and implementing a new native bridge API for payments. My base 
assumption is that there's enough shared codebase between desktop and 
mobile that re-using the existing technology would be simpler, but 
that's purely speculative -- I have no experience with Chrome/Chromium 
source code. I'd love to hear from Zach on the topic.
