I see, didn't know.

I'm not sure that this is correct.

CPAN, GEM and CARGO importers also use guile-json. If
a developer is using importers I think he can install guile-json
since most importers use it. (guix import utils) is only used
by importers, so people that don't want to use importers
can continue without using guile-json. To put it in perspective
guile-json is 100KB (guix size only displays MB).
