Apple Pay for the Web should meet very strict security requirements but this has little to
do with the browser since their Payment App is a part of the platform (HW + OS + Browser).

Third-parties do not have access to such technology.

Anyway, assuming we rather stick to the [stone-age] technology the Web Payment WG
is touting (Basic Card Profile), what would PA-DSS impose more specifically
regarding stored credit card information?  I don't understand how for example
section 2.3 of https://www.pcisecuritystandards.org/minisite/en/docs/PA-DSS_v3.pdf
would be applied to a browser.
