Minor issues:



The document has as the intended status “Informational” while the last call says that the intended status is proposed standard?



Nits/editorial comments:

In the IANA section the “Encoding considerations:  binary”. I noticed that RFC 4627 has a broader description:

“Encoding considerations: 8bit if UTF-8; binary if UTF-16 or UTF-32

JSON may be represented using UTF-8, UTF-16, or UTF-32.  When JSON is written in UTF-8, JSON is 8bit compatible.  When JSON is written in UTF-16 or UTF-32, the binary content-transfer-encoding   must be used.”
