Re: [std-proposals] A Minimal JSON Support Library for C++

To be frank, I don't find the motivation convincing. The motivation is
essentially a rant about the ecosystem of third-party libraries, but
provides no good justification for why something has to be in the
standard library. There needs to be a case study of how often C++
really is used for JSON, why it is unacceptable for people to use
third-party libraries, and whether adding it to the standard library
actually solves the problem.


On an editorial note, I'm not sure where you have your images from,
but those probably need sources. They could also use a dark theme
(pretty sure CSS media queries let you pick different images for
dark/light theme). Currently, I'm seeing dark-themed HTML but the
images are black text on white.

There are also accessibility concerns with providing images. I would
simply provide a formal grammar. People who rely on screen readers
cannot use these images, and an alt text isn't sufficient.
