I agree with the concept as described by David, but strongly disagree
with choosing JSON. I think we can and should do better than that.

Firmware design decisions centered around Golang are about as good as

Let's not create another public interface in a rush, as we have with
NVRAM. Let's take the time to actually design something really well.

Maybe no NVRAM, but surely there will be persistent storage on board?
