Mozilla opts for 3.

As was raised at TPAC, I think a few of us still want to have a discussion around improving the Payment Handler story and seeing if there is a more generalized model that can handle any payments data model in a generalized way. There is an extremely rough proposal (more like a starting point) proposed here:


That I think might be worth including in the charter. As it stands, Mozilla will find it quite challenging to ship Payment Handlers so we are seeking a way to create a more generalized solution that can be used for payments, as well as possibly other things (our concerns are detailed at length at [1]). This is NOT to say that we need to throw out Payment Handlers or Payment Method Manifest... on the contrary, both serve as a good basis for what we want to achieve.

I can work with Ian and the Chairs to make the some proposed to fit in the above into the updated Charter.   

Kind regards,
