Agree - I would think the ADs would agree and push back.

>> Background 
>> ----------
>> 
>> Javascript Object Notation (JSON) is a text format for the serialization of structured data described in RFC 4627. The JSON format is often used for serializing and transmitting structured data over a network connection. With the increased usage of JSON in protocols in the IETF and elsewhere, there is now a desire to offer security services such as encryption and digital signatures for data that is being carried in JSON format.
>> 
>> Different proposals for providing such security services have already been defined and implemented. This Working Group's task is to standardize two security services, encrypting and digitally signing, in order to increase interoperability of security features between protocols that use JSON.  The Working Group will base its work on well-known message security primitives (e.g., CMS), and will solicit input from the rest of the IETF Security Area to be sure that the security functionality in the JSON format is correct.
>> 
>> This group is chartered to work on four documents:
>> 
>> 1) A Standards Track document specifying how to apply a JSON-structured digital signature to data, including (but not limited to) JSON data structures. "Digital signature" is defined as a hash operation followed by a signature operation using asymmetric keys.
>> 
>> 2) A Standards Track document specifying how to apply a JSON-structured encryption to data, including (but not limited to) JSON data structures.
>> 
>> 3) A Standards Track document specifying how to encode public keys as JSON-structured objects.
>> 
>> 4) A Standards Track document specifying mandatory-to-implement algorithms for the other three documents.
>> 
>> The working group may decide to address one or more of these goals in a single document, in which case the concrete milestones for signing/encryption below will both be satisfied by the single document.
