You claim that this is a [very?] bad idea and/or that it is already done, right?

Well...

Elliptic curves is the current NIST standard for asymmetric cryptography.  It will (in due time) be replaced by something else which hopefully be a simple upgrade of existing systems including YASMIN.

YASMIN is not JSON-LD but it could host JSON-LD including signed JSON-LD.

WebSocket has nothing to do with RDF or JSON, it is this context primarily a challenger to REST and HTTP.
