You brought it here because of our tendency to flame? :-)

What do you see as the most accepted JSON DDL format?

I'm serious. I've seen plenty of schemas and DDLs for all sorts of things in all sorts of data languages, and the main thing they have in common is that they are unreadable to mortal man or woman. This is no help whatsoever to anyone coding to handle the resulting data; you may be able to generate something to parse your data automatically, but you will have no idea what to do with it when you get it. You have no understanding of the semantics or protocols associated with the data from a DDL. You need a full spec, of which a DDL may be a part but cannot be all.
