It's not about kicking one or the other. It's about providing more options
and better defaults.
Fortunately, as I stated, Dancer 2 will allow you to pick whatever you want.

We will also make an effort to clarify where problems are. You are more
than welcome to help us with that.

I'm personally more excited about INI. It's easy to read and edit. JSON is
not for end users.

YAML provided us with something that is:
1. familiar to Perl programmers
2. easy to write
3. easy to read (for non-Perl programmers too)

However, it does indeed have quirks, and unfortunately not a single parser
who gives us what we want:
1. maintained
2. minimal overhead (memory, CPU)
3. advanced data structures

Am looking forward to the upgrade.

You're more than welcome to try and run your application on Dancer 2 right
We need all the feedback we can get!

Try to use the branch "feature/sawyer_goes_nuts". It has more up-to-date
