The Web Payments IG is chartered to suggest a vision, gather use cases
and requirements, formulate payment architecture capabilities, and
propose an implementation roadmap. That's what we're doing now.

The group that will execute on this will be a proposed future W3C
Working Group like the "Web Payments Working Group".

To summarize:

The Web Payments IG proposes a plan on what needs to be done and when it
needs to be done.

The Web Payments WG executes on that plan.
