[whatwg] JSON Playlist Format

We've been getting some traffic on our forums from users wondering
about JSON playlist formats. Specifically, because we aren't
supporting XML playlists in our player in HTML5 mode (setting the
Access-Control-Allow-Origin headers would be impossible for most of
our users), they're looking for a JavaScript-friendly way to
encapsulate their playlists.

A very cursory search turned up JSPF
(http://wiki.xiph.org/JSPF_Draft), but it appears to be in draft. Are
y'all aware of any other formats, either in draft or that have been
released? If no, any idea why no one's done it already?
