Re: CIF-JSON draft 2017-05-15

Sorry, I forgot to send this earlier today.

Here are my suggestions. I'm not trying to force anything on anyone here. I just find that Google Docs are very useful in such collaborative discussions. There are some differences and questions, as mentioned at the top of the document.

Two points:

1. I do not understand the stripping of "data_" and "save_" from the names we have for these.

2. Save frames.  What is the problem with just doing this?


     "data_another_block":{
        "_abc":["xyz"],
        "save_internal":{"_abc":["yzx"],
                        "_r.fruit":["apple","pear"],
                        "_r.colour":["red","green"]}
                        },
     }
That is, why the special "frames" list?

Two questions arising:

1) CIF2 mentions byte order. This would be the (optional) first two characters of the data stream?

2) list item names need not be lower-case, right? Nothing I see in CIF says that they conform to the requirements of data names. Thus, CIF2 could have upper- and lower-case names in list items.

I have several friendly suggestions. I think the way to do this is to just give you a link to a Google Doc that has my suggested changes made in it, and let you react to that.

I think this one is going to take some more elaboration:

Entries at the same position in JSON list datavalues correspond to one another if the datanames belong to the same category.
