Right, but my point is that you still have to define what the toJSON 
will do.

With "serializer = { attribute };" (possibly with simpler syntax!) you 
automatically get a toJSON with the behavior everyone would typically 
expect toJSON to have here.  There's value in having that shortcut so 
spec authors do not have to reinvent that wheel in prose.
