    In short?  No.

    For one thing, our storage format is different from theirs (better,
    frankly), and as a result is not compliant with their "standard".

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.

To start with, it doesn't support arbitrary precision numerics. That means that right off the bat it's only accepting a subset of what the JSON spec allows. 'Nuff said, I think.
