The JSON-ness of WQL is just a convenient way to give input to a query
engine without introducing a parsing burden or learning curve. Whatever
tool consumes WQL parses JSON and then uses it to build a SQL or a NO-SQL
query against credential metadata in a DB. The metadata can come from
credentials in whatever format.
