I agree, however would like to note that we are writing the 
specification, so we can define it how we need to, so long as it remains 
JSON compatible, which as per the media type registration, is just a 
syntax, and /not/ an Internet Standard.

Status of This Memo

    This memo provides information for the Internet community.  It does
    not specify an Internet standard of any kind.  Distribution of this
    memo is unlimited.

So, perhaps we need to define what we need to be compatible with, and 
what we can normatively reference.
