Re: Draft JSON specification for CIF

that's true, approach of 'cod-tools' gives ~3x increase of file size(CIF -> JSON), but I expect that HTTP compression (tried with gzip on~25Mb CIF files) would reduce that back to the size of input CIF. Ofcourse, compression/decompression is the trade-off here.

Exactly.
