Plasma Debit (see…

Plasma Debit (see https://ethresear.ch/t/plasma-debit-arbitrary-denomination-payments-in-plasma-cash/2198) explicitly calls itself a Plasma flavor, and is arguably much closer to an account-based model than a UTXO-based one; in fact, it seems to have very similar properties to what this is proposing.
