    At amazon, there was a super refreshing mandate handed down from on high:

    - Utf-8 all the things.
    - all services must support https
    - all services must support json as a primary data format
    - you have 4 months to make it happen
    - failure to comply will result in termination

    This was part of the rationale for that.

    @SortOfTested Termination? That's harsh. I like it.

    Anything less and people treat it as optional.
