Short list;
JSON pros over XML;
 * Most of the time less verbose
 * Parsing much faster and less resource intensive

XML pros over XML
 * Namespaces

In my current main project (Qi4j) we rely quite heavily on JSON, and
at the same time we want as few dependencies as possible. Solution;
Copy-Paste an implementation into our sources. It isn't rocket science
to get JSON right.

That said; I leave it to you guys to work what you want.
