Manu,

But you don't need that. Glenn is simply saying: basic EAV / SPO is 
enough for the target audience (not of this mailing list). RDF 
compatibility is a secondary matter. The burden of RDF fidelity should 
be borne by those that know RDF rather than those that don't give a darn 
about it.

Show JSON-LD as a vehicle for basic graph based data representation. 
Leave RDF to RDFers. Any RDFer worth his or her salt can make graphs 
with RDF fidelity from any basic EAV graph.
