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.

Hi Marcos,

The Modal Dialog was in the charter, but since it seems not like it has a home in WICG, I removed it for now.
(However I accidentally left it in the milestones table further down.)

I personally have no objection to including it.

Here is the text that used to be in the charter around modal dialog:

 <li>Modal Window specification. Based on experience with the Payment
          Handler API, the Working Group is discussing creation of a new UI
          component that allows a service wworker to display user interface to
          the user in the form of a modal window with top-level context. This
          functionality would generalize some of the current payment-specific
          functionality of Payment Handler API.

Would that text work for you? Suggestions welcome,
