Section 1.2 says:
This document updates [RFC4627], which describes JSON and registers the media type "application/json".
It should say:
This document replaces [RFC4627], which previously described JSON and registered the media type "application/json".
The link at https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc7159 says it obsoletes RFC 4627. I believe this is the intent and result of RFC 7159, and that RFC 4627 need not be consulted except for historical reasons going forward.
