      Description

      What about allowing comments in the JSON schema? May prove useful as schemata get more complex.

      Pro

      • documented schema

      Con

      • non-standard JSON

      Alternative

      • pseudo-element, e.g. _comment: "..."
      • redefine hack: (see: http://fadefade.com/json-comments.html )
        It's possible to redefine Javascript object attributes:
        > Object.keys(JSON.parse(' {"a": 1, "a": 2}

        ')).length;
        => 1;
        So you can do this:
        "favorite_numbers": "An array containing my all-time favorite numbers",
        "favorite_numbers": [19, 13, 53]

      It looks like standard javascript comments could be enabled here:
      net/hydromatic/optiq/model/ModelHandler.java(54)
      by setting the ALLOW_COMMENTS flag.
