Some fundamental points that don't come through via the abstract:

1. Syntactic incompatibility != conceptual incompatibility
2. Microdata, Microformats, RDFa all provide syntax for embedding graphs 
within HTML documents
3. Linked Data is about using de-referencable URIs in object (resource) 
description (respresentation) oriented graphs where each URI resolves to 
a representation of its referent i.e., graph based structured data 
representation via hyperlinks.

If the critical points above are easily discerned from the abstract, we 
finally have what I think most people seek: a simply spec for making 
Linked Data via a JSON based syntax.
