There is a vCard in RDF document:

http://www.w3.org/Submission/vcard-rdf/

and, afaik, Renato wants to referesh it, too.

JSON-LD is an RDF serialization. Ie, putting the RDF representation into JSON-LD does not need a new standard...

There has been discussion on iCalendar in RDF, too:

http://www.w3.org/wiki/RdfCalendarDocumentation

although, somehow, the community never came around to have something as clearly described as vCard in RDF. But the same thing hold: any RDF vocabulary can be described in JSON-LD, so there is no need for a new standard in my view...
