"PROPOSAL: JSON-LD will continue to support blank node identifiers for 
properties and graph names. When converting data to RDF 1.1, the 
specification will not introduce any special checks to handle these 
specific cases. It is up to the implementations to figure out how to 
convert this data to something conformant to RDF 1.1."

Everyone is kept happy this way :-)
