I think an RFC would be great, and this list is probably as good a place 
as any to refine it.

The IBM spec looks very similar to David Lee's: more concise because it 
omits the MEMBER element, but at the cost of some loss of semantic 
clarity, in my view. A string in JSON does not have a name property; 
rather, a member of an object has a name and a value, and the value may 
be a string.
