Has there been any thoughts or interest on supporting GeoJSON?
This has significantly less overhead than WFS when working with web
clients like openLayers.

I think we're close to an agreed upon specification for GeoJSON.
You can take a look at WKT/GML/GeoJSON side by side (sort of) in this demo
FeatureServer will deal in GeoJSON. I'm guessing GeoServer will as
well. It would be cool to get MapServer in on it.
