I think most are in agreement that decentralized is better than centralized
for a democratised system where the goal is to give no party an advantage
over others purely due to the architecture of the system.

Having said that, I'm not sure  what you mean by "payments should be
decentralized". Can you explain or propose the content you think would be
appropriate?
