If the intention is that LDS (Linked Data Signature) is going to be W3C's
primary JSON signature scheme, I believe you have a rather long way to go:
https://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-credentials/2017May/0039.html
https://github.com/w3c-dvcg/ld-signatures/issues/5
https://github.com/w3c-dvcg/lds-rsa2017/issues/1

Personally I find it a bit odd mixing stuff that are based on entirely
different assumptions.  JOSE is based on that canonicalization is not
available while Linked Data Signatures is based on that it is.
