This comment made me think of something (maybe crazy)...

I'm hoping that we are not expecting a client to understand how to create
the hierarchical representation of the fully qualified project name and
instead feed it to them in the JSON responses.

If this is the case we can probably control the delimiter on the server
side without the client even knowing that there is a delimiter. We could
have the first character of this new property actually contain the
delimiter used.

  ".A.B.C" - would mean that "." is the delimiter
  - vs -
  "#A#B#C" - would mean that "#" is the delimiter

The challenge left is to figure out which delimiter to use.
