If you expect JSON and get I-JSON, all is well, so I see no point in
adding a media type or suffix to actual documents.  It would be marginally
useful to indicate that you expect I-JSON, but surely nobody would be
so foolish at this stage as to insist on I-JSON.  So let's not bother
with these formalities until there is a proven need for them (which may
be never).
