I'm really interested in just what *is* JSON?  Is there a standard? 

The charter doesn't point to anything.  Neither does the JSON task force

All I can find is http://www.json.org/ which defines a syntax (and even
states that it is incomplete) and http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc4627.txt,
which is again only a syntax.  Perhaps JSON is only a syntax and there
is no data model!

If the WG doesn't have a notion of just what JSON is I don't see how the
WG can proceed.
