I agree that it doesn't need to be a /core/ requirement. It is for the
PaySwarm use case, as our company reads data from the distributed Web in
RDFa and stores it in JSON-LD format. However, lossless translation from
RDFa/Microformats/Microdata to JSON-LD doesn't have to be a core
requirement. That being said, JSON-LD does support this now as a
side-effect of supporting RDF.

It seems as if we're agreeing on that point - what am I missing?
