Here's the relevant part of the JCS document, from Appendix A of https://cyberphone.github.io/openkeystore/resources/docs/jcs.html#ECMAScript_Compatibility_Mode:

"""
Numbers *must* be expressed as specified by EMCAScript [ES6] using the improved serialization algorithm featured in Google's V8 JavaScript engine [V8]. That is, in the ECMAScript compatibility mode there are no requirements saving the textual value of numbers. This also means that the JCS Sample Signature in incompatible with the ECMAScript mode since it uses unnormalized numbers.
"""

I think exactly matching Google's implementation is an unreasonable requirement, and I don't see any evidence that JCS usage is widespread enough to warrant making changes to the JSON float output format.
