I added a proposal for something I call CSV-LD to the wiki [1]. As the name might suggest, this is strongly tied to JSON-LD, and uses JSON-LD context and frame definitions to both provide meaning to CSV, allowing it to be losslessly transformed to JSON-LD, or to create CSV from JSON-LD (with or without embedding).

Consider this a straw-man proposal. It does lay out some use cases that are generally useful (and perhaps should be copied to other pages on the wiki), but there may be more use cases to consider. IMO, creating a specification for this, and extending an existing JSON-LD implementation to support this would not be too difficult.
