Hi Manu, everyone

The Wiki page has some inconsistencies: the title says "Verifiable Claims Task Force PROPOSAL” and then it talks about a Working Group "Determine if a W3C Working Group should be created”.

My personal view is that this is not a payment-specific problem (“to do X the web site needs to be able to verify your claim Y”), and I am not sure that it’s a W3C problem.  I also happen to think it’s rather hard (since in effect, you end up having to say “well, Z supports my claim Y” - e.g. my driving license supports my claimed birth-date, and then you have to get organizations Z willing to support individuals’ claims).
