I got started on UC 12 -- the chemical structures case (requires:
WellFormedCsvCheck, CsvValidation, MultipleHeadingRows, and
UnitMeasureDefinition). Perhaps this was not the best case to begin with,
but I feel like I'm in too deep to turn back now. :)

I hit a wall in trying to describe these as JSON, paticularly the multiple
header rows. Is there any background reading I should read to learn more
about csv to json? Or has no one figured this out yet?

Thanks, 
Bill
