The Letsencrypt folks use JSON schema validation for checking messages for correctness:

https://github.com/letsencrypt/lets-encrypt-preview/blob/master/letsencrypt/client/schemata/signature.json

This would of course get less straightforward if the actual message was coded in Base64.
Letsencrypt seems to be in a delicate position: being compliant with the standards dogma or being pragmatic/useful.
I'm happy that I don't have to do such choices :-)
