Is anyone saying that's wrong? What's wrong is the comparison between
"native" and "web". Apple Pay could not have been created through the
App Store model either. It's a feature of iOS coupled with the
hardware found in the latest iPhone.

If we get browsers that operate at the OS level they could deliver
similar features. If they don't operate at the OS level they could
integrate with what the OS provides. Either way this is something that
requires new APIs and UX, whether "native" or "web".
