It would be nice to have a side-by-side comparison with
http://msgpack.org/ which is in current use by a couple
existing D projects, include D Completion Daemon (DCD) and a
few of mine.
There is a comparison to msgpack here (and to other formats too):
[MessagePack] is a concise, widely implemented counted binary
serialization format, similar in many properties to CBOR,
although somewhat less regular. While the data model can be used
to represent JSON data, MessagePack has also been used in many
remote procedure call (RPC) applications and for long-term
storage of data.
MessagePack has been essentially stable since it was first
published around 2011; it has not yet had a transition. The
evolution of MessagePack is impeded by an imperative to maintain
complete backwards compatibility with existing stored data, while
only few bytecodes are still available for extension.
Repeated requests over the years from the MessagePack user
community to separate out binary text strings in the encoding
recently have led to an extension proposal that would leave
MessagePack's "raw" data ambiguous between its usages for binary
and text data. The extension mechanism for MessagePack remains
