Hmmm... I'm not sure I see the necessity for that deviation.
That date string (with an underscore instead of the T character) will
results in errors even in JavaScript.

Since it's JSON and it is based off JavaScript, the date format that
JavaScript can expect is also based on a simplified version of
ISO8601: YYYY-MM-DDTHH:mm:ss.sssZ [1] (it also accepts an RFC2822 date

Although JSON is a human readable data format, it still is a machine
data-interchange format. IMHO, I wouldn't deviate much from the
expected format.
Application that uses the JSON data can then visualize the date (and
the data in general) in a more human friendly way.
