Honestly, I didn't expect that such an editorial issue will cause so much
discussion. The content is there, the round-tripping is to and from RDF is
fully specified (and tested). We didn't want to submit the API spec yet as
there are still some minor issues with it and we also wanted to make sure to
have a number of interoperable implementations of the spec before publishing

That being said, would it help if we would extract the to/from RDF stuff
from the API spec, rewrite according the RDF Concepts and publish that as a
separate document? I'm saying as a separate document because we targeted
JSON-LD to web developers without any RDF background.

Yes, we planned to write one..
