Giving GDAL 2.1 a try will be way less effort than implementing a
GeoJSON driver inside QGIS. And if there are things still left to be
fixed, it's probably better to fix things on the GDAL end since this way
the support for it is in a library shared by many FOSSGIS tools.

(Please note that this recommendation is only meant for non-database
providers. Feel free to propose a native GeoPackage driver ;) )

All the best
