No, it's not. JSONRequest does not work for the following reasons (not  
exhaustive):

* It doesn't work for XML formats, such as XBL and XSLT. XML formats and  
particularly <?access-control? are one of the main use cases of this  
specification as originally designed.

* It requires a new JavaScript network API that only allows the transport  
of JSON. We already have a JavaScript network API that covers more than  
JSON (simply uses HTTP) -- XMLHttpRequest.

* Having multiple network APIs seems like a bad idea.

I suggest we close this issue.
