Not being super familiar with either BSON our JSONB what advantages are we
gaining from the difference?
It might be interesting if we supported the same binary representation so
we could have a binary send/recv routines that don't need to do any
serialization/deserialization. Especially since a standard format would
potentially be skipping the serialization/deserialization on both the
server and client.
