I didn’t have much time to think about this yet, but here are two things I
noticed so far:

Should be: There MUST be a way *to* label ...

Why are we inconsistent with the JSON spec in this regard? RFC4627
(http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc4627) is quite clear about this:

   An object is an unordered collection of zero or more name/value
   pairs, where a name is a string and a value is a string, number,
   boolean, null, object, or array.

   An array is an ordered sequence of zero or more values.

Will think a bit more about the rest of it tomorrow.
