would not a whitelist
"disallow everything except N in this list"
be more secure than a blacklist
"allow everything except N in this list" ?

not that is that much important with JSON
as you can have only one local context,
but still for some peope willing to extend JSON
to more than "one local context",
a whitelist would be prefered imho.
