Very interesting conversation. I hope we will come to some JSON  
standard at the end of it and promise in forward to implement it in  

It is a fact that JavaScript use camel-case conversion for style  
properties. Another fact is that it is very BAD and STUPID thing in  
JavaScript. In addition it is very inconvenient. So,  I am really  
against this. Listen to Douglas Crockford at http://developer.yahoo.com/yui/theater/ 
  if my opinion is not good enough for you. We have a standard for  
names, so, please, don’t invent the new one.

n = {"given-name": "John", "family-name": "Doe"}


Agreed with everything else.
