@richardPAG,

I don't know enough to answer the question about what processors might offer or allow. 

Several thoughts occur to me:

* We had some early discussions about dynamic currency conversion:
  https://github.com/w3c/payment-request/issues/3

  At the time we decided that we would not (in version 1 at least) include support for
  currency changes per payment method. 
 
  My recollection is also that we thought that payment handlers could offer different currency
  conversion services, and we wanted to learn more from real world deployments.

* We have also had discussions about split tender payments; I think there remains interest in 
  addressing those (which might also include some use cases like "paying with points and
  another payment method").  I mention this because it seems to me that the fine-grain change
  you mention regarding currency might also be applicable in a multi-tender scenario.

Ian
