Asbjørn,

I assume you meant "of course want 4.2 to happen right now" -- even if some
interests target 4.1 as the end-game.

On the IG list a week and a half ago I suggested that an effort be made
towards a framework for "definitions of "digital wallet". 4.2 can be
advanced without waiting if we all understand what the various camps agree
and disagree about.
