It is so easy to make spelling errors in keys using hand-written JSON.

SDL I have only ever used with Dub, but it works better for me than JSON.

TOML is really an INI evolution so known to many.

YAML is used by many but doesn't really allow for the ease of specifying lists
as TOML and SDL have.

Probably yes. Though Cargo has taken many different decisions to Dub and
mostly I think Cargo took better decisions.
