>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/KAFKA-5540
>             Project: Kafka
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: KafkaConnect
>    Affects Versions:
>            Reporter: Ewen Cheslack-Postava
>            Priority: Major
>              Labels: needs-kip
> The internal.key.converter and internal.value.converter were original exposed as configs
because a) they are actually pluggable and b) providing a default would require relying on
the JsonConverter always being available, which until we had classloader isolation it was
possible might be removed for compatibility reasons.
> However, this has ultimately just caused a lot more trouble and confusion than it is
worth. We should deprecate the configs, give them a default of JsonConverter (which is also
kind of nice since it results in human-readable data in the internal topics), and then ultimately
remove them in the next major version.
> These are all public APIs so this will need a small KIP before we can make the change.
