Isn't the wire format for UIMA-AS as well as for jVinci/SOAP basically XMI
(with binary options for UIMA-AS as well - not sure if binary CAS is 
also supported in jVinci/SOAP)?

So a JSON format would I imagine be an alternative to the XMI or binary
representations of the CAS.

Such a JSON format could then be coupled with say a REST-style endpoint
which might serve a similar function as UIMA-AS / jVinci - but the same
REST-style endpoint could just as well work with any other format (XMI,
binary CAS).

So communication protocol (REST, UIMA-AS messaging service, SOAP) and
data format (XMI, binary CAS, JSON) seem pretty orthogonal to me.
