When I try to decode a json string that include a key with identifiers,then it will be converted to an invalid propery name.

Test script:
$string = '{"test-me+for": "X"}';

Expected result:
Fatal error: syntax error, unexpected ...

Actual result:
object(stdClass)#1 (1) { ["test-me+for"]=> string(1) "X" }

"test-me+for" is a valid property name in PHP. You can access it using $obj->{"test-me+for"}.
