Of course the idea of the YAMLish dialect negates this one somewhat:
"JSON is, effectively, a subset of YAML. If your producer emits
JSON then a YAML parser will
read it. The inverse is not true."
I'm still in favour of YAMLish on largely aesthetic grounds but I
have to say that I don't think any of the objections to JSON are
If we /were/ going to allow JSON now would be the time to do it.
