      Perhaps I wasn't clear, I wasn't intending to propose that anyone needs to adopt a superset of JSON or add any features to JSON. I was simply asking how and if people like to define JSON variants (most importantly subsets) with MIME types. Sorry for the superset digression...

      +1, keep it simple.

      Most of my JSON use is as a communication format between JS, Python,
      PHP, etc. There's no value here to having JS-specific features in the
      format.
