Your not understanding or I'm not understanding.  JSOM is a CLIENT
technology and EMBPERL is a server technology.  It can process ANY input
and it doesn't give a darn about application/json.

all the form data is in %fdat, whether you like it or not, and it is
done on the server side.  If you don't want to use something from the
hash, don't use it.  %fdat in of itself does not produce any html
