1.  It seems odd in Section 1 that a value is defined for object, but it is
not for array.  It might be better to move the definition of value in the
paragraph of what JSON can represent so it does not appear to be special for
object. 

 

Don’t get it, which para is that?  I’m looking at instances of “value” in Section 1 and not seeing it.

 

An object is an unordered collection of zero or more name/value

   pairs, where a name is a string and a value is a string, number,

   boolean, null, object, or array.

 

   An array is an ordered sequence of zero or more values

 

Value is explicitly set in the first paragraph, but is implicit in the second (or it flows from the first)..
