I don't think we have to enforce this but we should point it out in the spec so apps can differentiate IF they need to. In the proposed spec I worded this as:

"If a payment app defines a payment method as enabled then it MUST be able to process any payment request that lists that payment method as supported"

So as long as the payment app believes it can handle the request it can set the method as enabled (that includes if the app is able to enroll the necessary instrument on the fly).

What we are trying to avoid is apps that advertise payment methods that have a high chance of failing because then the website has to resubmit the request and start the process again.
