In principle, an XPath 2.0 implementation (including XQuery or
XSLT) could present a JSON file as an instance of the XPath etc etc
Data Model and it could be queried directly.

I don't know if there are systems that do this in practice;
it doesn't sound terribly useful to me, since I see JSON as for
Web server -> Web Browser communication over HTTP, primarily for
use with JavaScript, and if you wanted interoperability with
XSLT you'd send XML instead.
