Maybe of interest to you payment standards gurus :-)

Secure Remote Commerce (SRC) is a new proprietary and copy-protected payment solution:

Many questions, few answers and no specifications doesn't bode well for this effort:

IMHO, W3C shouldn't "support" SRC but rather try to figure out which bits and pieces of Web technology that *may* be missing and if this technology:
- Is viable (implementable, doesn't open new security holes, etc, etc)
- Has other use cases including schemes competing with SRC

The market may very well reject SRC for local solutions like iDEAL in the Netherlands.

The W3C PaymentRequest API is good thing though; I plan to use it myself in "Saturn".
