Linked Data should never have been inextricably bound (overtly or 
covertly). Let's fix this anomaly ASAP by getting behind a JSON syntax 
for Linked Data representation. The Semantic Fidelity of JSON based 
Linked Data graphs is a secondary matter to be addressed once there's a 
generally accepted syntax for Linked Data graphs.

Basically, JSON variant of N-Triples. Let's not burn time on Prefixes etc..

N-Triples and CSV go hand in hand. A JSON syntax should deliver 
something similar. Simple but powerful!
