14RE: [json] Media type for JSON?

> Therefore, any media type registered for JSON would likely beYou would seem to be correct assuming RFC 2046 is the controlling
standard. Quoting from that:
4.5. Application Media Type
The "application" media type is to be used for discrete data which do
not fit in any of the other categories, and particularly for data to
be processed by some type of application program. This is
information which must be processed by an application before it is
viewable or usable by a user. Expected uses for the "application"
media type include file transfer, spreadsheets, data for mail-based
scheduling systems, and languages for "active" (computational)
material. (The latter, in particular, can pose security problems
which must be understood by implementors, and are considered in
detail in the discussion of the "application/PostScript" media type.)
