Not sure what you mean.  Rhetorical question?

JWT is a lot more complicated than that.  It's more than reading the JSON,
but also ensuring proper crypto signatures, on the generation and
consumption side.  You need to be able to reach out to other servers to
fetch keys and handle extra validation checks.  There's a standard set of
claims that's being requested as well.  Yes, the json smart dependency
bites, maybe we can convince the author to switch to the javax.json
