    • Tag changed from json to section:lang

    String.prototype.isJSON is really meant for internal use only. I agree its ill-named, though, as it role is to verify the string can be securely evaluated.

    I think we should just deprecate it as a public API.

    Deprecating it is good, but String.prototype.evalJSON() depends on it for implementing the 'sanitize' parameter.

    That's what I meant by deprecating it as a public API (keep the functionality, just avoid exposing it).
