Thank you, David!

Here’s what I see in the diff and my initial comments.

Ian

====

1) Clarify in 2.1 that "The digital wallet may be part of the user agent.”

    Since I don’t believe that we ever intended to constrain digital wallets to NOT be in user agents, this seems like a clarification
    to me (and I’m fine with it).

 2) Change in 2.2:

      "<strong>Registration</strong>, by the payer with their <a href="#digital-wallet">digital wallet</a>, which includes one more more
       - <a href="#digital-payment-instrument">digital payment instruments</a>.”

    to

      “<strong>Registration</strong> of the payer's <a href="#digital-payment-instrument">digital payment instruments</a>  into the payer's
      <a href="#digital-wallet">digital wallet</a>, possibly mediated by the user agent.”

    I think that’s ok, too.

 3) Add in 3.2:

        "• Digital wallet to payment instrument communication : For the request and response messages for the Instrument Response, the payment messages are sent between the digital wallet and the payment instrument using information from the payment instrument's registration."

     This is the first time we will have spoken about wallet-internal communication. I wonder if we could allow for additional flexibility by reframing this as
     user agent to payment instrument communication. Something like this:

        "• User agent to payment instrument communication : For the request and response messages for the Instrument Response, the payment messages are sent between the user agent (possibly via the digital wallet) and the payment instrument using information from the payment instrument's registration.”
