Hi Richard,

Repository of access control, where we store ACLs in JSON for RDF data.

Mine :-) . It is only prototype, I don't publish it yet. It's part of my 
Ph.D. thesis.

For example ACLs.

Well, it is close to approach XMLLiteral. Most of the cases for the XML 
xsd:string is sufficient, but it is in spec.

>   • Given that anyone can define new RDF datatypes, why should RDF-WG do it?
Because JSON like XML and HTML is universal and common. There are a lot 
of solutions based on the JSON, which can be mixed with RDF in future.

It can be connected to JSON serialization, which is in the scope of 
RDF-WG's charter.
