JSON Duplicate Keys

Everyone, please keep in mind that JSON does not and never has claimed to
be the best or last data format. No doubt many better ones have been and
will be created, some as variants of JSON, some not. If you'd like to
create a "fixed JSON" or "enhanced JSON" or whatever, feel free -- whether
it treats comments, duplicated keys, or \u2028 differently or whatever. But
please don't confuse any of these variants with JSON itself. As a data
format, JSON's greatest value is its stability, and the inability for
anyone, including us, to version it.
