Updated Tokenized Card Payment specification and new Payment Method Encryption specification

Dear Web Payments Working Group,

Thanks to some recent good work by Keyur Patel and Wanli Yang, I’ve been able to make progress on two specifications:

 - Tokenized Card Payment 

 - Payment Method Encryption

The tokenized card payment leverages the general-purpose Encryption specification. The tokenized card spec also includes algorithms for the first time, modeled on the basic card algorithms. They will need a lot of refinement, but I’m happy with this first draft.

We have made some progress on understanding how a payment method specification can leverage encryption, though we have more work to do. The Encryption specification leverages
JSON Web Encryption and related technologies.

I look forward to additional text from Rick Waller and Keyur Patel as we continue to flesh out the two specs and how they connect.

Reminder: the next tokenization task force call takes place 12 June. The spec is likely to change between now and then, and I expect we’ll review them both during that call.
