Hi all.
For anyone tracking navigator.mozPay(), could you take a look at this price change proposal and perhaps provide feedback?

Up until this proposal, the price of a product was a numeric ID that the payment provider could map to a price/currency however it saw fit. This was nice and abstract/generic. The proposal above makes things pretty specific to Mozilla's Firefox OS rollout insofar as prices can be overridden per region / mobile carrier at the merchant's will. Maybe someone has ideas to keep it generic? 

It's likely that mozPay() will exist as a dumb pipe for incompatible data structures (like WebRTC) and that will be ok but it would be nice to avoid that.
