No data type JSON, but CAST(something AS JSON) pretends to work

      Description

      MariaDB [test]> SELECT CAST('foo' AS JSON);
      +---------------------+
      | CAST('foo' AS JSON) |
      +---------------------+
      | foo                 |
      +---------------------+
      1 row in set (0.00 sec)
      

      I don't think it makes any sense. We don't even have format JSON, how can we pretend we can CAST to it? And it's not even a valid JSON text.
