I'm considering starting a new PR to update ActiveRecord and wanted to 
check here first to see if it is a viable feature. In Short I would like to 
be able to define models for JSONB objects and have them supported as first 
class associations just like foreign-key style associations. 

This would provide the ability for developers to store objects in JSONB 
while still enjoying the benefits of ActiveRecord such as association 

I am currently attempting to accomplish this using ActiveModel::Model and 
the Attributes API, but find a few things are more difficult to support 
such as validating my JSONB objects when the "Parent" (the model they 
'belong_to') is saved.
Tentatively I'm thinking of something like `has_many :posts, json: true` or 
something like that, though of course I'm open to feedback in any regard. 

Would this be something I should look into or are there 
technical/philosophical reasons why this would not work?  Thanks in advance.
