1795A couple of JSON questions
- Jan 1, 2012I'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?
