Its semantically better - means the client code is not dependent on the field order but can just do lookup by name once the data is loaded. Anyway - its not essential, so up to you.

I think implementing client libraries that can replace chronyc are a better direction.  Or if chronyd were to implement a more standard protocol library like things would be easier to automate and instrument.
