Just heard about this announcement, seems an exciting but fairly obvious enhancement. To be honest, I was a little surprised that this wasn't done from the start.
Anyway -- I never had a 360 and started straight with the XBOne, but there must surely be lots of older (and therefore cheaper :) ) games available, which is what I like to hear!
I would expect a website-specific API to return method-specific class instances (or lists of class instances). Converting from the API's preferred data format to a strongly-typed object is something I would consider as an API function, otherwise what is the point of using the API rather than just accessing the REST service directly?
