OK, since what I said seems to have become distorted somewhere along the line, allow me to rephrase: I don't agree that jsonb should be preferred in all but a handful of situations. Nor do I agree that partisanship belongs in our documentation. Therefore, -1 for your proposal to recommend that, and +1 for Merlin's proposal to present a comparison which fairly illustrates the situations in which each will outperform the other.
