I asked about a test for what is a polyglot i.e. valid code in many programming languages. I got the comment "compile it" and OK I understand but do you have a more serious comment or also for strange reasons consider this "not a real question"? Are polyglots not worthy your opinion when I think it can be very advantages to have a format such as JSON that is valid in many languages.

Thanks for any comment / answer
