yes a lot of intriguing ideas are there! Merci Cecile.

a. JSON defines objects and data structures, in effect a serialization that complements (and can include any aspects of) programming.
b. X3D JSON Encoding effort is seeking to find a round-trippable representation of X3D scenes compatible with .x3d .x3dv .x3db interchange of scenes.
So... am not sure a simple bifurcation of heavy/light will occur. Rather am trying to create a standardizable form for interoperability while many coexisting variations might also emerge for a variety of special purposes. Vive la différence.
all the best, Don
