it is the combined Object, Array, and String classes literal syntax in ECMAscript, the language runtime available in 99% of web browsers. SPARQL queries are some arbitrary new string format, requiring new parsers, serializers, etc. 

now that theres an Algebra for SPARQL in the spec, its primarily a matter of coming up with an agreed pattern for the JSON/XML query expression..
