I agree with you on all points, the best part is YAML is pretty standard 
now for Java. So lots and lots of familiarity there.

But at the end of the day. It was decided to go with SDL, even with its 
spec being incomplete and hardly anybody uses it.

So for the time being, I just use JSON as a form of protest.
After all, just because I don't like it, doesn't mean it should effect 
other people. Unless of course the decision is made to drop json. Then 
oh boy competition time!
