This is essentially a solved problem in v4 where we have the JSON module which can perform conversions on lists to JSON data.  That combined with the data parameter allows you to create arbitrarily formatted JSON data.

If you really wanted to add this to v3 I  guess the easiest way to would be to copy the contents of the control and reply lists to the request list.

update {
	request: += reply:[*]
	request: += control:[*]

There's unlikely to be overlap between the different sets of attributes.

Changing the JSON format in v3 to support lists wouldn't really work because it'd be a breaking change.  If you wanted to try out the current code in master branch and go the v4 route I'd be happy to address any issues that come up.
