Same here at CTIC various Open Data projects in Spain. I don't see any problem with adding JSON. Probably the only issue is that the document dates already back to more than a year ago, it's still a WD in progress (so to say since we didn't update it at all since then) and needs a review, an update and to be published as a Group Note. As usual, we would need IG volunteers to do so.
