It is in Appendix A., "Changes from RFC 4627":

   o  Changed the definition of "JSON text" so that it can be any JSON
      value, removing the constraint that it be an object or array.

Failing to note this in the Introduction is not ideal, but the errata
system is not a good place to record that (holding it for document up-
date probably does not make sense, if and when the document does get
updated, this particular issue will not require prominent notice).
