Wouldn’t an XML purist come up with the following, making it much more time consuming to process?

<json_object format=“xml">
 <result units="kg/m at 2">
   <value>18.75</value>
 </result>
 <request_fields>
   <height units=“metres">2</height>
   <weight units=“kg">75</weight>
 </request_fields>
</json_object>
