I missed this comment from Serhiy:

How many differences there are between the two?
I think we might add notes to the table at http://docs.python.org/3/library/json.html#encoders-and-decoders (either something similar to the notes in the table at http://docs.python.org/3/library/stdtypes.html#mutable-sequence-types, or just a couple of lines in a third column). If there are too many differences and we follow the specs we can just add a note saying that the decoding is done according to the specs, add a link to them, and mention a few examples that are valid in Python but not in JSON (like Serhiy did in his message).
