[WebCrypto.Next] Linking web identities with real-world identities

The payments world has use cases for secure access to bank accounts from your browser and for installing and activating payment instruments as part of your digital wallet.  Both of these require some way to bind web identities to real-world identities.  An argument for an intent based approach is given in the following blog post for the Web Payments IG, see:

Please note that this is my personal viewpoint and should not be taken as that of the Payments IG, nor of W3C.
