For better or worse this distribution expects the user of it to add dependencies for the types they want to handle.  Otherwise we'd end up making people install dependencies for types they might not want.  It would make a good note in the docs somewhere (unless they are already around... I just could not find them).
FWIW if you are just doing basic JSON POST/GET stuff you might be interested to know that newer Catalyst supports that out of the box.  I find the build in stuff + Catalyst::View::JSON is enough for the basic JSON API needs I tend to have.  SO unless you need all the power of the REST package you might want to skip it.

JSON::MaybeXS, but I didn't have that module.
I installed it and now it works fine.

Also maybe JSON::MaybeXS will be added as a requirement for
