Hi Ian:

Just a few points on the Executive Summary[1].

In email Sun, 1 Mar 2015 01:09:02 +0000[2], I wrote:

>I think "level playing field (aka fair competition) for merchants,

believe we should call it out more clearly.

*High Priority*
I've not found where this point is called out in the new edition. Because
the point comes from the minutes of our Utrecht meeting, if it is really a
non-goal I think we should decide that.  I might have missed it someplace -
apologies in advance if I have.

auto).  I realize we need use cases to spell it out, but this kind of
application portability is a core benefit of the Open Web Platform.
"Interoperable" is mentioned in the first sentence under "Goals" but I think
we need a little more.

This is just my attempt to get us to be a bit more specific about
interoperability in the way W3C views that.  It might not be clear to
everyone, especially those outside or new to W3C what we mean by >device<

The implied definition of "interoperability" in the "Goals" section doesn't
align with this idea, and neither does the implied definition of
"portability" listed as a bullet.

All I'm trying to say is that I don't think we know exactly what causes cart
abandonment, and I would hate for that to become a metric for the
effectiveness of what we're doing.

Best regards,
