Why? I think the benefit of using JSON directly is that you avoid 
needing to do this.

If you go with the AMQP typesystem then you either need a whole host of 
comparison/equivalence rules - i.e. essentially a canonical mapping into 
a much simpler typesystem - or you have to have schemas be precise about 
the exact AMQP type that some variable is (i.e. uint16 not anything else).

I'm not convinced it would. Even if exposed simply as JSON I don't think 
it would be a huge barrier and of course it could be masked behind 
ObjectMessage or whatever as with the AMQP type system if desired.
