If all (or most) rows need the same 'attributes', then they should be columns. If you have different attributes for different rows, then JSON is better. Example: A shopping site with cameras, dresses, tools, etc, all in the same table.

Joomla can get away with whatever it says because it does not plan on implementers having more than a few hundred items in their tables.
