Well, clearly not.  But JSON is very much a language of wider
communication nowadays than just browser-server.

In addition, there's a convention that maps XML fragments onto pure
JSON -- not Badgerfish, but another one whose silly name I forget.
Each XML element becomes an object with three key-value pairs: "#name"
maps to the name, "#attrs" to the attributes (as a JSON object), and
"#children" to the children (as a JSON array of strings and/or objects).
This, of course, is exactly the MicroXML data model.
