Up till now I'd always seen JSON as something produced by machines (by some data providing process, or by JSON.stringify'ing some object structure) and something which people just JSON.parse'd back in to an object structure to work with that data as simple object/array structure; where the most important aspect for all was always simplicity of the data structure.

not afaik, the closest I've seen is people writing javascript objects 
then JSON encoding them, but that's only for simple demo data / 
examples. Perhaps better said as, if they do, it's a minority barely 
worth considering, and if they want to write RDF by hand, point them at 
turtle. (imo of course)

Best,
