Yes, we should add that as well. I think it would also be interesting to
link from a context document to a data document as Glenn proposed:

We could define an optional "data" or "instance" MIME type parameter for
JSON-LD context documents. TO link from an data/instance document to a
JSON-LD context document we could use a link header (RFC5988), e.g.:

Link: <http://www.example.com/context.jsonld>; rel="describedby";
