The JSON RFC and JSONRequest

The JSON RFC (4627) was recently submitted by json.org. They are also proposing a JSONRequest which will be similar to XmlHttpRequest but allow two-way XML data interchange with cross-domain access securely.

I think the RFC speaks of good tidings, but I have mixed feelings about the JSONRequest particularly since the Web APIs WG recognizes the problem and intends to support cross-domain access. Besides, does this model of having FooRequest and BarRequest for every little detail really scale?
