I decided to stick closer to a MARC-XML type definition since its would be 
easier to explain how the two specifications are related, rather than take a 
more radical approach in producing a specification less familiar.  Not to say 
that other approaches are bad, they just have different advantages and 
disadvantages.  I was going for simple and familiar.

I certainly would be will to work with LC on creating a MARC-JSON specification 
as I did in creating the MARC-XML specification.
