It's syntax is based on JavaScript but crippled for no reason other than to
follow a outdated specification. It's so frustrating to be at this end of a
keyboard to see awful syntax being promoted just to follow the RFC which is
clearly flawed. It's so much more logical to change and fix the problems in
the specification so that in future code will work correctly and JSON
parsers would be much easier and consistent. "Don't break the web"
shouldn't ever become "Keep the web broken" code will never evolve if the
core is rotten.
