Yes, exactly.  I do note that in the Provenance section there is an
Editor's note deferring modeling the version of OA itself.  That could
apply to this too, but that's not clear to me.

In the case of the serialization as JSON-LD, there is a need for a
good contract between producer and consumer as to the actual
@context. The spec itself is adequate to that, since the @context is
listed in the spec, but whatever is arrived at for versioning the spec
has the chance of needing to change that, hence change its name.  A
scenario of slightly less importance is that as the OA spec itself may
continue evolve toward its possible state as a W3 Recommendation,
there are likely to be changes in the recommended @context.
