This is a new spec, so I guess the question is whether it's primarily
"JSON with some more features" or "subset of Python syntax in the same
way that JSON is a subset of JS". If it's the former, then yes, it'd
use "true" and "false", and you'd have to define them; but if the
latter, the spec would simply use "True" and "False". But being able
to guarantee that JSON decodes correctly with this parser (ie make it
a guaranteed superset of JSON) would be of value.
