I don't know why they would want to. They've issued FAST as linked data. 
JSON would be a step backward, and wouldn't fit into their current 
development direction. I think if you want it in JSON you need to 
provide that.

Here's a sample record. Note that headings are typed as "topical, 
geographic, event, time" and more. There are broader, narrower and 
related links. I believe they are doing some links to data sets like 
GeoNames.
