There isn't an equivalent at this point.
You could perhaps interpret the 'java-class' attribute that's already there.

Long-term we might agree on a language-independent way of identifying
such types, perhaps:
  {"type":"long", "subType":"unix-epoch"}
  {"type":"string", "subType":"ISO-8601-date"}
  {"type":"string", "subType":"lexicographic-decimal"}

If there's interest, this should be fairly easy to specify & implement.
