	Not in the least surprised, JSON is a very popular serialisation
format and as such has been turning up in database field values for some
time now. I know of a number of codebases where a sql query can be
followed by expanding JSON encoded fields in each resultant row and checking
the contents as a secondary filter. It makes a lot of sense to move that
into the database engine.
