Your own wallet can look up the exchange rate and compare it to what you're
getting (and in fact, wallets do!).
Besides, assuming the customer is *always* being scammed seems extreme.
There are plenty of merchants that genuinely care about their reputation
and genuinely want people to pay with Bitcoin so they can avoid card fees.
> Payment protocol should not contain these fictional data
Well, I think the protocol should contain whatever is useful.
I'll probably draft a BIP for this next week or so.
