      I think JSONPath is kind of a de facto standard. It was chosen by ebay to create its new SQL variant ( http://ql.io/examples )

      I like JSON Schema but I'm not fan of this JSON Pointer draft. The JSON Path or Pointer reference something inside the representation (HTTP Body). So yes, it could be inserted with benefits in the fragment part of the URL as it is proposed for plain text (RFC 5147) or W3C Media fragments.

      Fragments are always URL encoded either if they look as a URL like path or a JavaScript like path... I agree it'd be great to have the author propose a draft to the IETF

      I meant something like a "add" of a number to a string
