Hi David,

Part of the exercise of creating this document [1] has been to help us establish a shared
understanding of terms and scope.

AdrianHB asks a scope question in the payment apps wiki: does the WG want to focus
on browser-based payment apps initially (that is: those that run in a JavaScript environment
in the browser), or a broader class of web-based payment apps (which includes the browser-based
apps but also HTTP services, for example).

Presumably the WG could choose to limit a “v1” Recommendation to browser-based
apps, then build from there. Or the WG could choose to work on the broader class
in v1.
