There are actually threads about different forms of the API.  At least
someone wanted a not-so-javascript sounding form.  I'll take a look and
give a thumbs up if I find it.

I cannot currently endorse or argue against the W3C payments group's
proposed standard, too big, close calls on privacy matters, influence
from questionable corners, etc.  It'll be a mess even if it winds up
being safe.  Are web standards often safe?

I'm no fan of javascript, but a simple clean security focused standard
might be preferable, even if it depends upon javascript.
