That is if JSON content coming to a web client is properly formed.
development stage when a client fetches some JSON content read from the
filesystem (say metadata descriptor of a dynamic grid object) it is not
to be properly formed. This is when inspecting "raw" JSON at the
debugger comes in handy, and protocol succinctness brings value.

deserves a merit. Choosing JSON name for the protocol created a lot of
confusion as many people think that it has much in common with
been discussed on the web quite a number of times...
