  BL[], OB[] etc.

  I think the most obvious representation as JSON is a straightforward
syntactic translation from SGF, and a common chunk of javascript code
can serve as that... The next step can be to have an option to generate
SGF.json directly but I don't see a great case for that except for
optimization of particular webapp setups.
