Hello Martin,

First off I don't see the point with having multiple organizations specifying
the JSON core format.  AFAIK, JSON started its life as RFC4627 which later was
upgraded by RFC7159.  That is, ECMA-404 can safely be ignored.

My reference to ES6 is not related to the JSON format, but how JSON parsers
and serializers could (IMO SHOULD) be implemented in order to offer maximum
interoperability as well as supporting digital signatures in a human-friendly way:
https://cyberphone.github.io/openkeystore/resources/docs/jsonsignatures.html
