Good to hear -


One specific point:

of a linked data graph.
...

Test case: is foaf:name <http://xmlns.com/foaf/0.1/name> an IRI
dereferenceable to a Linked Data document?

Linked Data is being defined here is mostly silent on format limitations
but by context the text leads towards "no" because the context is the
JSON-LD document.  But it is used in JSON-LD examples  :-)
