That's not "YUI JSON", that's just a JSON callback which
Catalyst::View::JSON supports just fine (see the CONFIG section of the
Catalyst::View::JSON docs).

I use JSON callbacks frequently, with YUI, and find that decorating
the resulting hash with pagination and then using
DBIx::Class::ResultClass::HashRefInflator everything works remarkably
well, without any munging.
