Agreed on the performance part. More notably, I'd say that the
performance or memory overhead of JSON vs. noJSON is pretty much
irrelevant when compared to the disk or network delays that we in any
case need to worry about.

What I do worry though, and why I did bring this up in the first
place, is that the API being defined ends up being as easy and
straightforward to use for key clients, as that's a major part in
deciding whether the API is successful or not. Personally, with the
assumption that I'll be writing notable parts of the higher-level
components on top of the microkernel, I'd much prefer a type-safe API
that doesn't require major string processing.
