Adrian, time.... Time changes everything, Chip-n-pin is causing fraud to
move away from the Merchant terminal to online. Laws are changing
quickly to adjust.

Paypal was successful because they wrote a secure application in an
unsecure environment. They worked around all of the issues.

Paypal follows the best practices, assumes liability for fraud
transactions, and required financial standards.

If all you want to achieve with v1 is social payments (not financial
payments) or optimize checkout then do whatever.
However, credit cards, checks, and consumer data is closely regulated
and consumers have legal protection.

I am not sure why payment security topics are such an anti-pattern
topic at W3C.
