      How about moving security-related discussion to another thread or group?

      And with regards to adding keyword 'undefined' to json, I would be
      strongly against adding any such language-specific keywords. As a
      non-javascript-user of json I would find it a rather silly and useless
      addition. Json's goals are not, as far as I understand, to be
      javascript(-only) serialization format, but rather serve as a
      minimalistic generalized object notation.
