property names in JSON could begin with characters not allowed as
first character in XML like "$" (used by Goggle) and "@", and "#" used
by article.

This list also includes numbers, so while a sequence of numbers e.g. (1, 2, 3) is valid as far as XSLT is concerned (and therefore a JSON array could easily be converted to a valid sequence), it would be invalid to do something like <array><1/><2/><3/></array>, though as per Robert's suggestion, you could do something like <array><i>1</i><i>2</i><i>3</i></array>. Of course, if the entire point is to enabled to traverse a JSON document in the same way you would traverse an XML document (a.k.a XPath), then, once again, it seems to me the real problem to solve here is how do we go about traversing a JSON document with XPath instead of how do we convert JSON to XML and back again.
