hello.

fyi, there just was a new RFC for JSON. it is called I-JSON and is meant 
to be a more restricted subset of JSON ruling out some of the more 
obscure things that are legal in JSON, but may lead to strange behavior 
and inconsistent interpretation across implementations.

http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc7493

if we go the plain JSON route, we could say something similar to the 
idea of postel's law: AS producers should only produce I-JSON, but they 
should be prepared to consume unrestricted JSON.

cheers,

dret.
