…and it is probably worth pointing out that, while SDF itself is notated in JSON (and thus benefits from CDDL), the data models that SDF describes cannot be limited just to the expressive gamut of JSON data.  So a JSON data definition format such as those proposed at json-schema.org can be an inspiration, but cannot on its own solve the entire problem.
