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.

No answers yet. Maybe you can help?
