It's not a big deal in practice, from what I hear.  And more  
important, the KISS principle really does not want JSON to subsume  
ISO Date details.  I'll let Bob, Doug, and others who actually deal  
with lots of JSON (not saying you don't, just haven't heard that  
yet ;-) talk about how infrequently Date objects turn up in trees to  
be serialized.
