Yes. We saw this also back in Perl days, with some XML libraries using
a mix of an array for contents and a hash for attributes, and some
doing different things depending on whether there were multiple
elements with the same name and/or mixed content. XML::Twig is an
example that can be soewhat configured.

If you're going to do extend JSON, why not allow
    sku: "123456789",
    name: "argyle socks",
    item.fabric: "organic fair-traded happily-grown thistle",
    item.colour: "orange",
    <description><p>hese organic socks really pop,
      with their <bold>super-bright</bold> orange and
      blue stripes and their sharp thistle spikes.</p>
      <p>Commonly sold with our <itemref
sku="83728372">SockLock</itemref> patented technology.</p>
