In other news, there are $ NI * NV + 1 $ JSON variants (where $ NI $ = number of implementations, $ NV $ = average number of configuration variants per implementation, $ + 1 $ for the standard itself).

Embrace and extend works for open source, too.
Putting in a clever extension to JSON can be exploited to create customer lock-in for an open-source library.
That’s why smart people use standards.
