1795A couple of JSON questions

      I'm hoping someone can help explain the rationale behind a couple of
      points in the JSON specification:

      1. 8bit content-transfer-encoding for UTF-8

      RFC 4627: "When JSON is written in UTF-8, JSON is 8bit compatible." Why
      was 8bit selected rather than binary content-transfer-encoding? This
      limits the length of JSON strings to 994 octets.

      2. Non-unique object members

      RFC 4627: "The names within an object SHOULD be unique." Why was SHOULD
      selected rather than MUST?

      Paul
