Considering json values are Python literals and yaml isn't I'd say you have the first part backwards. And as far as human-written data goes strictness helps prevent errors.

But it doesn't have to be a competition. If there's value in having a standard yaml parser or value in accepting yaml in specific cases that value should stand by itself.
