@paulkirth will be better placed to discuss this, but it's worth noting that a significant amount of the JSON output prior to @paulkirth's work was fundamentally broken. I think it makes a degree of sense to make other changes like this that aren't necessarily required for compatibility, whilst everything else is being overhauled. Longer-term, I do believe we should aim for compatibility, unless there's a good reason to break it.
