Trying to access variables 2-3 levels deep,  to be able to access variables that deep, do I need to flatten first?  Thanks in advance.

You shouldn't need to. Given JSON like so:

 

{
"person": {
"name":{
"first":"Ray"
}
}
}

(Pardon the lack of indentation.) I could then use {{ person.name.first }} in my document.

@Raymond Camden 
The MS Word Add-in for Adobe Document Generation has a feature to generate tags from JSON for drag-and-drop - does this only work for top-level variables?

It works just fine with values under the root. I literally used the JSON above and it worked just fine:
