You know that both types support scalar values right? 'a'::JSON works now,

I'm wondering about just pushing hstore in core (even if technically
still an extension, install it by default, like we do for PLpgSQL), and
calling it a day.

That would be one of the silliest and most short-sighted decisions we have made in many years, IMNSHO. The demand for strong JSON support is enormous. I don't think I have ever received as many positive comments on any other feature I have worked on in the last 9 years. What these people want is not something jsonish, they want json, pure and simple. And they want it fast and featured and efficient.

Much as I love hstore, it isn't json, and so it won't satisfy that demand.
