The trade-off question was about _when_ the merchant stores it: only
when the contract is successful (paid), or already when it is being
generated (proposed by the merchant).  Depending on the type of
application (i.e. serving data vs. shipping goods), being lazy and only
storing 'paid' contracts can reduce database transaction volume.

IC. But in both cases the merchant will have some kind of "shopping card", wouldn't he? Even for a single, immediately downloaded item the merchant needs to keep track of her offering - simply because there are different VAT rates in the EU.
