What new features you would like to see in next QM version?

JSON parser

Hi Gintaras,
Would it be hard to incorporate a JSON parser similar to the IXml and IXmlNode interfaces already in QM?
There is something from MS called System.Runtime.Serialization.Json

Is there a .NET limitation of QM for this?
