Is it a feature or bug that local datasources be JSON formatted objects instead of JavaScript arrays/objects?

    I noticed something that was not documented in the dropdown lists, where they can have local datasources that are JSON and not JavaScript objects/arrays (e.g. I can output from my page a JSON formatted object like [ "key" : "value", "key": "value" ] instead of [ key: "value", key: "value" ]).  I wanted to find out if this is the case the grids and other controls and find out the answer to this question: 

    Is this a feature or a bug, because I've come to rely on it (e.g. I would hate for this not to be supported)?  I think of it as a feature, but don't want to count on it if all controls do not work the same as the dropdowns in allowing this in the datasource's data property.
