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): http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc7049#appendix-E.2
which states:
[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 unclear.
