If I correctly grasp the purpose of the CG, even during the existence of
the IG and now the WG, it is to broadly advance the substance of the work
in ways that the IG/WG participants may not themselves be 'empowered' to
do, for all sorts of reasons.

Nothing at all prevents the CG from developing a thoughtful framework for
well-structured discussion relating to all manner of digital wallet
concepts, covering the full diverseity of digital wallet implementations.

Major commerical suppliers of competing digital wallet implementations may
or may not like the framework, may or may not use it to describe
themselves, but at least the broader community can describe and
differentiate their concepts and functional implementations more
pragmatically with a common ontology.
