Script Parameter Passing: use JSON?

FileMaker has always lacked an official way to pass multiple parameters to a script.   There are a few common solutions  such as passing parameters separated by the line-break or Paragraph symbol, passing named parameters in the "$var1 = "value"; $var2="value" format and then getting the values using the Eval function, etc.

 

Now that JSON is built in, I'm wondering if anyone is using that as a standard way to pass parameters?  The advantage of JSON is that it allows named items, in any order.
