Note that this is tricky, since we want to reduce payment "friction".

I suspect the way this plays out is that where we do introduce something like that, we allow things like limit-setting (so many transactions, with such-and-such a cap, for a given time period…). Note that this has also been considered important in areas like harm minimisation for gambling systems, as well as being a fairly common practice in managing corporate spending where thresholds are set for reporting requirements (analagously to legal cash transaction reporting requirements as it happens).

But we should actively check what we do in this space with the relevant WAI groups - WCAG, and the Cognitive Accessibility task force.
