json, allthough easy to read, is fairly inneficient. What if there was a way to send the keys and values seperately, so that if you knew the key formatting, you could just read and make sense of the order of the values (and generate json if needed) ?

I imagine this already exists. Does anybody know what it's called?

@joegrimer you can always just define your own binary structures and define an ICD for other developers to understand it. If you want a library, I think Protobuffers operate sort of like that under the hood.
