The Microdata spec [1] now references only a JSON serialization. JSON is becoming more and more interesting for developers, and the RDF WG has looked at two different specs, RDF/JSON [2] and JSON-LD [3]. Recently, the RDF WG stopped working on RDF/JSON with strong interest in further incubating JSON-LD, which is now a W3C Community Group [4].

Should this task force provide guidance for HTML serializations on JSON serialization, in addition to RDF? If a goal is to have the RDF generated by different implementations be compatible, should the same not be true for JSON? Does it make sense that the JSON serialization then allow for RDF round-tripping?
