Many, I was just raising this as a "use case other than PaySwarm",
which I think is important because it means that tools other than the
usual RDF tools can be brought to bear on the data. I don't know that
there is anything preventing this right now except perhaps trying to
make double-sure none of the @# type funny characters are disallowed
in key names and that the serialisation is stable enough to be
suitably indexed by these types of databases, which I guess is a
main goal of the basic version of the JSON-LD.

Incidentally, the couchdb one is particularly interesting because of
the way it does replication. For relatively small datasets having some
sort of seed voiD/JSON-LD machinery and then using the replication to
get local copies of data(sub)sets for local processing could be a good
way to work with RDF from an application developers PoV... Just
speculation here though.

Cheers,
