Yes, if they can't start making real money in this business, that would seem to be the answer (and please CYCH, never mention a wallet or any variant of a wallet again!).

I believe CYCH is first in this business and would be a valuable aquisition. Excerpted from that article:

"In the payment processing business, VeriSign has a lot of catching up to do. It's in third place behind CyberSource Inc. (CYBS) and CyberCash Inc. (CYCH) With its $733 million purchase of Signio last December, it bought a 20% share of this promising $75 million market--which is expected to grow 100% a year for the next three years. While the market is focused on consumer transactions, VeriSign is branching into the emerging business-to-business market. It has inked deals in the past month with online marketplaces run by Ariba Inc. (ARBA) and Commerce One Inc. (CMRC) Sclavos' reasoning: This way he gets first dibs on managing the back-end payment systems."
