Hi all,

First off, thanks so much to everyone for their help in figuring out how
JSON-LD can work for Drupal's services initiative.

I wrote up an explanation <http://groups.drupal.org/node/244158> of the
JSON-LD features that we'll be using... it's meant in part as an
introduction to basic Linked Data concepts as they are used in JSON-LD,
since there are very few Drupal devs who have any knowledge of LD. But I
also cover two parts of the spec that we need which are still under

The most important of these for our use case is language version handling.
I explain both named graphs and language maps as possible ways to handle
language versions. However, I do not feel comfortable moving forward with
named graphs because I believe it is too much of a Linked Data specific
concept, and the increased complexity would limit the number of people who
could maintain this part of Drupal.

I think that Niklas L's latest
language maps would fit our use case without adding too much
overhead. Specifically, I would envision something like this snippet:

I was wondering what the current thinking on (and support for) the language
maps proposal is?
