I agree that:
- multiline values are a must
- arbitrary key/value pairs are a must
When you describe the syntax you envision, I am just thinking, why redefine YAML? (In that case, if you'll allow me a moment of glibness, lets call that syntax YAYAML.)
AFAIK both YAML and JSON allow for representation of the same data types (numbers, strings, arrays, objects/dictionaries).
