+1 on simplicity.
I'm concerned that some of what has been discussed over the past few
days is loading every feature with (self-describing) metadata. If there
is need for such metadata, then wouldn't it be better at the
features/featurecollection level? Even then, aren't we in danger of
doing XML-in-JSON by devising our own JSON Schema?
If anyone had a bright idea how to do the simple, one geometry per
feature (optionally null), case without precluding multiple geometries
in future, then I would be tempted to go for that first.
