Subject Re: JSON toString methods in data classes
Date Tue, 30 Dec 2014 17:42:12 GMT
I'd say a separate "presentation" element, *Format, *Formatter, *Renderer
or what we think sounds best.

At least JSON would normally be Locale neutral so maybe Renderer sounded
better for that, but other suggestions welcome.
