Hacky, but acceptable.

A map of Foo has the same binary format as an array of records, each with a
string field and a Foo field.  So an application can use an array schema
similar to this to represent map-like structures with, e.g., non-string

Perhaps we could establish standard properties that indicate that a given
array of records should be represented in a map-like way if possible?

{"type": "array", "isMap": true, "items": {"type":"record", ...}}
