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].

Gregg, I am not sure what you mean. The task force description does refer to a possible RDFa->microdata/JSON mapping. Is this what you mean? Or is it a microdata -> JSON-LD that you are considering?
