You know that I would really favor to either include support for this rather
now then later if we keep @graph.

That brings me to another question. If we currently expand @graph that is
not at the object's top level, do we drop it or do we keep it in the
expanded form?

Considering what Niklas said about @set (different meaning at the object's
top level) I think we should keep it as it means something completely
different than just having an array.

So should we really expand

{ "prop": { "@graph" : [ ... ] } }


{ "prop": [ ... ] }

or should we keep the @graph? Please note that the situation at the
top-level is different as you could argue that you just explicitly describe
the default graph and therefore you don't loose anything.
