2. I have seen the idea that this makes the information dumped by utilities in

it doesn't fit with the current paradigm of "tool | filter | tool” at all. 
There are no tools able to accept JSON and filter it in any meaningful way, and I
dont see too many ppl changing their code to read JSON instead of text.  I 
don't even see the base tools changing. This output may be useful in corner 
cases only.

There is jq [https://stedolan.github.io/jq/]. You can think of it as sed + awk + grep for streams of JSON objects.
