We could also make the opposite argument - people use json unless they
have a specific reason for using jsonb.

btw, there is one more thing about JSON which I recently learned - a lot of
JavaScript people actually expect the JSON binary form to retain field order

It is not in any specs, but nevertheless all major imlementations do it and
some code depends on it.
IIRC, this behaviour is currently also met only by json and not by jsonb.
