Re: [xml-dev] Maximally Consumable Data

More accurately, you can 'eval' it, making it a potential security 
threat. You don't have to, but I still notice that about half of the 
JSON articles and tutorials I read suggest using eval() rather than 
evalJSON(). I suspect more than half of JSON processing scripts in the 
wild use eval() rather than safer options. You simply can't get around 
the fact that JSON was delibeartely designed to be evaluated with 
eval(). It's going to be insecure unless we change JSON so it can't be 
eval'd or remove eval() from the language.
