This does indeed answer my concerns. In fact, having the ability to
legally use blank nodes as properties in RDF is a considerably better
result than I had anticipated.

Thanks a lot!

     Hi Ryan,

     Thank you for your feedback on the JSON-LD specifications. This is an
     official response to RDF ISSUE-153: Ryan Laboucane: Blank Nodes as
     properties in JSON-LD, which is being tracked here:

     http://www.w3.org/2011/rdf-wg/__track/issues/153
     <http://www.w3.org/2011/rdf-wg/track/issues/153>

     You were concerned that we may remove blank nodes as properties in
     JSON-LD. After passing the specifications through the Last Call and
     Candidate Recommendation phases, there have been no requests to remove
     the feature. In addition, an "extended" mode of RDF, called Generalized
     RDF, has been defined that allows blank node properties. Due to this
     change, the pressure to remove blank node properties has been reduced.

     At this point, both the JSON-LD group and the RDF WG have decided to
     keep the ability to have blank node properties as a feature in the
     JSON-LD specification. We believe this addresses your concern. Please
     respond as soon as possible to this email to tell us whether or not you
     are satisfied with the changes we made.
