I definitely agree!  I have been also been looking at this from
another angle:
Right now JSON is faster than protobuf (at least in python), but
protobuf produces smaller output.  Protobuf will only get faster, but
JSON can not get any smaller.  Looking forward, protobuf definitely
has an advantage.
