Thanks for sharing and all the effort you've put in.  Congrats on getting
this far!

I've been prototyping and testing, a pure web standards based payment
system, and am at a point where I'm processing about 250,000 payments a
year, which is small scale in financial terms, but I have found quite
useful as a learning experience.

What I have found is over 99% of the payments so far, I've been working on
are a very simple use case, namely:

Alice pays Bob <amount> <currency>

Would this be considered part of section A -- "Future Work"?  Or is this
kind of payment covered in an existing use case, because the ones I looked
at all look more like purchases than payments.

I'm slightly sure where my work fits into the intersection of the IG / CG /
WG, or if it intersects at all.
