YAML is essentially a superset of JSON. The default formatting of YAML is considered more readable than JSON (at least by me). Either protocol turns out to be somewhat less easy to hand edit accurately than it first glance it seems it should be. That may not be an issue, but readability will make it easier to debug configuration issues at least.
