We discussed this in Brussels, but I agree, the patch is rather big.

I don't know when the standard will be publicly available.

I wanted to have one more  good feature in 10 and let postgres be on par
with other competitors.  SQL/JSON adds many interesting features and users
will be dissapointed if we postpone it for next two years.   Let's wait for
reviewers, probably they will find the patch is not very  intrusive. We
have a plenty of time and we dedicate one full-time developer for this
