(I couldn't work out what thread this was a continuation to -- the first 
message below didn't have a "Re:" in the subject line, and I can't find 
any other thread that used the word "hazard". So I don't know exactly 
what this thread was about. However, I shall not let that stop me from 
jumping in and giving my two cents...)

Assuming the thread is about introducing a way to convert a JS object into 
a JSON representation, then I would encourage you to contact the 
ECMAScript committee. Adding features to JavaScript is out of scope for 
the WHATWG specs.
