I'm very much +1 for the idea of a web of agents, where consumer digital wallets and payment terminals are simply current examples. The recent IBM ADEPT (Autonomous DEcentralized Peer to Peer Telemetry) paper anticipates these as peer objects that have embedded payment capabilities.

The paper's worth a read. I'm not sure of its official distribution status but it's relatively easy to find.
