It hardly matters, since this is valid JSON:

  "titles" : 
                  "en" : "Tyre centre",
                  "en" : "Tire center",
                  "en" : "Tire centre"

To use JSON usefully, you must lay down a rule about non-duplicated
keys that is outside the scope of RFC 4627.

we obliged the Chinese to invent chop suey.            --Marshall Sahlins
