Hi Katie,

+1  to the suggestion and the focus on highlighting interoperability in
the language.  While there is a fairly large push towards opening up
payments "platforms" by a number of players (large and small)  there is
still quite a long way to go in terms of providing connectivity in a
standard way between them and to those that use them.  To your point, this
is where a tremendous amount of benefit and opportunity lies in helping
people and companies using one platform or service to connect to others
using a different platform or service.  This is not to say that platforms
are bad, or that they need to be "leveled", simply that the unifying
connective tissue (ex. protocols/standards) is where some of the most good
can come.  Thanks again for suggesting!

Pat
