Does it matter?

You can build standards on JSON, but this seems like an effort to tweak 
the definition of success such that it points toward XML.

If anything, JSON's cultural drift toward anarchy seems to have helped 
rather than hindered its adoption.

(And I think we're seeing similar trends in the weirdly-named NoSQL 
movement too.)
