I can help if needed!?

I think we should decouple the progress of the syntax and the API a bit
more. I have to confess haven't yet had a deep look at framing and
normalization but since it's a brand new spec which implements a thing that
is quite different from existing approaches I wouldn't rush too much on
specifying the API. We don't even know yet how people end up using JSON-LD.
So especially framing (or other query mechanisms) might be something where
we might need to spend much more time on.

The question here is if we completely separate it from JSON-LD or not, see
also ISSUE-53.

Sounds good.

I doubt we will meet those deadlines.

Why can't we do that immediately after the syntax spec is complete?
