Some things I totally forgot during the call:
BitPay's paypro spec handles the "signing risk" well now – the wallet sends the unsigned transaction to the server, and any errors are reported to the wallet before the wallet signs. So it both prevents payment errors and avoids leaving the wallet in a vulnerable position. See: https://bitpay.com/docs/payment-protocol

It's also worth noting that an important feature for merchants is paypro interoperability with other cryptocurrencies. Most of the crypto payment processors accept payments on multiple networks, and maintaining a unique paypro infrastructure for each is expensive.

This group never really took off, so I'm closing the PR for now.
