Thank you for the clarification. I am hearing this:

 1) I am interacting with merchant.com (browser-as-payment-app). This amounts to the form-fill case.
 2) I am interacting with bob’s payment app (third-party-payment-app). This is a new origin.

Is that your observation? Do you think API behavior should differ in those two cases?
